The Slovenian Technology Platform FOTONIKA21 unites the photonics industries and relevant R&D stakeholders in Slovenia.

By pursuing the strategy of “hidden champions”, FOTONIKA21 aims to establish Slovenia as a global leader in the development and deployment of photonics technologies within carefully selected niche application fields such as in life science and industrial manufacturing.

To achieve this leadership in global market niches, an ambitious programme is required to:

• Supply the necessary research environment capable of supporting the visionnary and industrially relevant R&D activities for photonics components, systems and their application over a broad range of industry sectors;
• Establish strategic links between mainly SME-based photonics industries and principal user industries to share their long term vision and to mobilise a critical mass resources;
• Foster co-operation and smooth out the current fragmentation of national and European R&D activities.
