We, TU Delft and TNO, will align our research topics to those of the industry to stimulate participation and enhance usage of the research results by industry. This way industry can make use of excellent research teams and research facilities. We believe that by collaborating, we can create a stronger Dutch optomechanical research ecosystem that benefits both industry and science.

Dutch Optics Centre is committed to strengthen the competitiveness of Dutch companies by enabling and supporting co-creation of new products in different consortia within the research ecosystem. Think of co-research, co-design, and co-production. Our goal is to ensure a continuous flow of innovative optical and opto-mechatronic products by the Dutch industry.
