Contexte initial

Core of the consortium consist of laser application laboratories around Europe which are connected to a virtual hub to accumulate knowledge and infrastructure and promote the easy-to-access environment for development and validation of laser-based technologies. All partners selected a few directions (clusters) for validation of novel laser technologies, including equipments.


The APPOLO project seeks to establish and coordinate connections between the end-users, which have demand on laser technologies for fabrication, knowledge accumulated in the application laboratories of research institutes and universities.
