The promotion of innovation – that is, the successful implementation of ideas into new products, services, processes and business models – is a key objective of the Photonics PPP project Photonics4All, especially for the future-oriented technology of photonics.
This very objective is also pursued by OptecNet Germany, the merger of eight regional innovation networks for optical technologies in Germany. With the help of the guidelines created under this project, OptecNet Germany would like to contribute to the facilitation of innovation. The innovation methodology is based on the "open innovation" approach, extended by experiences and know-how of experts from research institutions, companies and business incubators in three "Photonics Workshops for Innovation", and has been adapted to European requirements and industry-specific needs.
