This is why the Photonics Node extends its area of influence to other nearby technology sectors. By strengthening its links of interaction with all these other technology environments, it helps in providing more comprehensive solutions to businesses, both local and foreign, meeting needs all along the value chain, and reinforcing the industrial, technological and knowledge Catalan ecosystems.
The photonics node provides specialized technical advice on the use and potential applications of specific tools and techniques (i. e. nanofabrication and nano-characterization, advanced engineering, biology laboratory, post-processing techniques…). These are ad hoc activities that can be adapted to the needs of the interested party.
The following infrastructure access services are available to companies:
Innovation workshops are aimed at generating collaborative innovation projects between researchers, technology companies and end-user companies in industrial sectors.
Secpholand is an interactive virtual environment that works as a collaborative online platform based on virtual elements that allow interaction within an entire innovation ecosystem. The platform will operate in the cloud and allow the generation of connections and collaborations along the production value chain of deep tech technologies, from knowledge transfer to the market.
As a complementary service to research and technology transfer activities, guidance services are offered to SMEs and start-ups with funding needs for innovation. Based on the needs of the company and the level of development and available TRL (technological pre-diagnosis), orientation is given regarding public and private financing options. In regards of public funding, we have experience in the various financing calls of the Catalan, Spanish and European system, and are connected through clusters and platforms to offer the capacity to identify the potential partners for R+D collaborative projects. In regards of private financing, we have experience with venture capital funds, business angels and related associations.
Specialized training is offered on the use and possible applications of specific instrumentation and techniques (ie nanofabrication and nano-characterization, advanced engineering, biology laboratory, post-processing techniques…). These are ad hoc activities that can be adapted to the needs of the interested party.
Testing can be done on a variety of microscopes, including confocal microscopy, STED 3D, STORM, nonlinear microscopy, Raman microscopy, and light-leaf fluorescence microscopy (LSFM).
