H2020 Pics4all

Pics4all (H2020 CSA)

The aim of the PICs4All Coordination and Support Action is to establish a European network of Application Support Centres (ASC’s) in the field of Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) technology. The prime objective of these Support Centres is to increase the impact of photonics and enable access to the advanced PIC-technology for users such as academia, research Institutes, SMEs and larger companies. ASC’s will guide potential users in the generation of new PIC-applications, by helping them to determine the technical and/or economic viability when applying integrated optical solutions and supporting them in the design, manufacturing and evaluation phase of their own PICs. As such the main task of these ASC’s is to lower the barrier to users for applying advanced PIC technology. Part of the project will focus on tracking the real-time progress as well as the outcome of these support activities, in particular regarding the impact on the innovation potential of users. To this end a dedicated data collection tool is designed to monitor the progress, performance and impact as the project unfolds. Ultimately, the project generates important insights in critical success factors and barriers regarding the adoption of early-stage new technology.
