Summary and objectives

The Strategic Partnership of Photonics for Health is being built on the basis of the following principles:

  1. Focusing on the application areas related to photonics-enabled technologies in health-related uses;
  2. Establishing links with other clusters active in the areas which can increase the cross-sectorial scope of the present Partnership and open up access to new value chains: in mobility, smart cities, active and assisted living, giving preference to the clusters with complimentary activities;
  3. Leveraging political support in the respective regions while planning visits and activities overseas and aligning with the regional and EU export strategies and the economic diplomacy support initiatives in the targeted markets.
