Photonics re-identified as key enabling technology by the European Commission

Photonics has once again been identified as a key enabling technology by the European Commission in its new Industrial Strategy for Europe. The document sets out plans for the future of Europe’s digital transformation, security and technological sovereignty by 2030. As a key enabling technology, photonics is recognised as being strategically important for Europe's industrial future, and will therefore continue to recieve support from the EU in its development. Key enabling technologies play an important role in helping Europe build a more circular economy, become a climate-neutral continent, uphold a global level playing field and develop a deeper and more digital single market.
