HiLASE deputies at the kick off meeting of the iQonic project

Funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 program for Research and Innovation, the iQonic project has officially started. iQonic, acronym of Innovative strategies, sensing and process Chains for increased Quality, reconfigurability and recyclability of Manufacturing Optolectronics, gathers some of the main European players in the field of technologies for the optoelectronics assembly and manufacturing. Optoelectronics is the technology concerned with the application of electronic devices to the sourcing, detection and control of light. Electronic devices are made of materials, like semiconductors, that interact with the light through its quantum mechanical effect and can convert electric energy into light or, conversely, can detect light and transform it into equivalent electrical signals. iQonic aims to offer a scalable zero-defect manufacturing platform covering the overall process chain of optoelectrical parts and components.

The project gathers seventeen partners from the EU, representing both industry and academia and will last 42 months and provides for a total budget of almost 8 million €. The European Commission expects that the technologies developed thanks to this funding can be applied in all optoelectronics manufacturing plants, increasing their efficiency and flexibility and reducing the production costs through recycled components.
The 26th October the kick-off meeting was held in Brussels, laying the foundations for the start of the research activities. Here you can find more information about the iQonic project.
