PREIN – Flagship on Photonics Research and Innovation
Light-based technologies, or photonics, have a large number of applications essentially in all areas of modern life. Photonics is utilised in, for example, telecommunications, biomedicine, healthcare, energy and environmental engineering, manufacturing and consumer products.
The PREIN Flagship brings together actors of the Finnish photonics ecosystem in an integrated network that covers the whole path from basic to applied research and to further development and commercialisation of disruptive photonic technologies. This will facilitate the transfer of results from the research towards innovative products and other societal benefits.
