Photonics European Projects and Networks at Photonics Europe

2020 participation details available soon
The European Village at SPIE Photonics Europe showcases initiative projects and related prototypes in a special section of the exhibition. 

Benefits of participating

  • A description of all projects will appear on the SPIE website.
  • Press releases will be distributed to all industry publications.
  • Your project will receive international visibility in the tradeshow, which will be accessible to all SPIE Photonics Europe attendees, including press and other officials.


The proposal can come from a running European initiative in the domain pertaining or closely related to the field of photonics (Integrated Project, Network of Excellence, Coordination and Support Action, Small- or Medium-scale Focused Research Project, Training Networks, etc.).

Consortium members must be able to attend SPIE Photonics Europe 2020 and be present at the project booth.

It is mandatory to show at least a prototype or an attractive and interactive demonstration (software for specific applications related to photonics is acceptable, as long as it can be demonstrated).
