Industry and knowledge institutions join forces in Dutch Optics Centre

Dutch companies in the optical manufacturing industry can strengthen their position in the global market by joining forces in a consortium with research institutes and the government. Therefore TU Delft and TNO launched the Dutch Optics Centre today. Some 20 industrial SMEs are involved in the initiative, six of which are now also a partner in joint R & D projects. The city of Delft, the Province of South Holland and the Ministry of Economic Affairs support this initiative.
