New projects and products from the OASIS workshops


13 collaborative projects were initiated thanks to 9 OASIS workshops that were organised in 7 different countries during the project lifetime. They are long-term cooperations between facility and an SME to develop a new product, system or service.
These projects will have a bigger effect on the whole ecosystem of the photonics applied in Life Sciences in the Eropean Union and will lead to further collaborations between various research facilities and end users in Life Sciences and photonics SMEs.

Services from photonics clusters


This report presents a set of services that can be offered by photonics clusters to help SMEs active in Biophotonics to reach medical and agrifood markets. Services to increase the visibility and improve the accesibility of Life Science infrastructures are presented as well.

OASIS Workshop Uppsala "Light-Based Solutions for Agriculture, Veterinary and Ecology"


The last OASIS workshop was held at the campus of the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala on May 19 and 20, 2016. This workshop was co-organized by the Public Private Partnership Photonics21 and had a particular focus on applications for end-users from the fields of agriculture, veterinary and ecology. It gathered more than 60 participants from the seven countries of the OASIS consortium and from Finland. It was a good mix of end-users (about 1/3), representatives from companies (about 1/3) and from academies and clusters (about 1/3). The workshop has been successful, with an excellent programme, and has generated many new connections which for sure will result in collaborations on new products and research and innovation projects. This OASIS workshop was longer and larger than all previous ones and its success shows that such a format seems to be very suitable for most players involved.

OASIS workshop Amsterdam “Spectral Imaging beyond Vision’’


On 21 and 22 January 2016 our successful Oasis workshop in Amsterdam took place at the prestigious Koninklijk Instituut voor de Tropen. Below you will find all the downloadable presentations as PDF-files.
The workshop was completely focused on Spectral Imaging as Biophotonics technology with Health & Life Science as most important application area. About 45 invited participants from France, Spain, Sweden, Italy, Germany, Denmark, Finland and the Netherlands joined the workshop.
The choice of the program appeared to be an important success factor: just one Photonics technology and one important application area resulting in all participants speaking ‘the same language’ in the entire value chain, so from R&D up to end users. What we also discovered is that Spectral Imaging is a great example of a Photonics technology with a high outgrown status and with a fast increasing number of applications, end users and products.
A lot of new contacts, new ideas and new leads were born!
Please contact your local Oasis representative if you have any question as a result of the published presentations.
