The award consists of a certificate, a trophy as well as a cash prize of € 5,000.Applicants must submit the following documents:
Thursday May 19, 9 am, to Friday May 20, 2 pm. Workshop, Exhibition, Match-Making and Guided Tours Location: Swedish Agricultural University (< 1 km from SVA), Uppsala. Coorganised by the OASIS project, the Photonics21 PPP, the Swedish Agricultural University and the National Veterinary Institute.
The European project OASIS aims to improve the links between life science facilities and small and medium size entreprises (SMEs). Previous large investments in these facilities will be more accessible to SMEs, which will enhance their competitive advantage in new products development and validation in the field of biophotonics.OASIS is an EU project of the category Coordination and Support Action (CSA). It involved 9 Photonics Clusters (2 national platforms and 7 regional clusters) from 7 countries.
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.
