EPIC to develop industry database and interactive map

The European Photonics Industry Consortium recently embarked on an ambitious project to map all the companies in Europe active in photonics, which amounts to over 3000 companies. This includes companies based in Europe, a headquarter or regional office, and companies who manufacture or extensively use photonics components, or provide services to the European photonics ecosystem. This could also include software developers, engineers, consultants, resellers and distributors, as well as academia and research organizations, clusters or other players in the photonics industry in Europe. The result will be a spreadsheet and interactive map that will be available to everyone.

To achieve this goal, EPIC is asking companies to participate in an open survey, which can be found here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/PhotonicsMapping

The survey will be available online until April 13, 2013 for companies to fill out.

Membership in EPIC is open to companies, research institutes, universities, and financial partners having operations in the European economic area. EPIC is owned and operated by its members. The annual budget is supported by subscription fees which are scaled to encourage participation of SMEs, R&D laboratories and universities, as well as larger companies. EPIC members encompass the entire value chain from LED lighting, PV solar energy, silicon photonics, optical components, lasers, sensors, displays, projectors, optic fiber, and other photonic related technologies.
