Fotonik - ljus i stället för el 

20 min report in Sweden’s Radio (SverigesRadio) on 2015-05-18

Swedish government invests in smart electronics and photonics systems

To say it in a nutshell: electronic and photonic components and systems can be found everywhere today, from a pedometer to a hydroelectric power station, and it grows in importance from an economic perspective.  Swedish electronics and photonics components and systems are important as export products and as well as enablers for industrial growth and a sustainable development of society. Energy sufficiency, wireless communication, advanced measurement instruments and energy saving production are just a few examples.

Photonics Agenda launched

Photonics, A Key Enabling Technology for Sweden For the first time, a common strategic research and innovation agenda has been developed by the Swedish photonics community. This is the result of a 2 years work involving a hundred experts throughout the country and supported by the European Commission and by VINNOVA. To make photonics more visible in Sweden and show its large potential is a strong urgency. A lot happens worldwide and Sweden should be a highly active actor and significant beneficiary of the strong expected growth of photonics.
