EC Funds 13 Photonic Research Projects

The European Commission will provide funding for thirteen photonic research projects into components for enabling cheaper and better connections at 1 Gbps and above. The funding totals EUR 22.3 million for projects that will run for two to three years and which were selected in 2010 by the European Commission, Austria, Germany, Poland, the United Kingdom and Israel. The Commission contributes one third of the funding of the projects and national funding agencies cover the rest.
