Welcome to NEXPRESSO, the "Network for EXchange and PRototype Evaluation of photonicS componentS and Optical systems". Beginning in July 2010, NEXPRESSO is a 3 year programme funded under the Seventh Framework Programme of the European Union (FP7-ICT-2009.3.7: Photonics). NEXPRESSO is a continuation of ACCORD the Advanced Components Cooperation for Optoelectronics Research and Development.
NEXPRESSO’s objectives are to:
Purchase at marginal cost pre-competitive photonic devices from innovative European companies and put them in the hands of European researchers and students, at no net cost to the university or to the company that furnished the devices and
Facilitate transfer of device evaluation results to potential end-users, assisting companies to access new markets and new applications.
Involvement in NEXPRESSO is free of charge. Organisations wishing to participate are asked to register their interest and hence become a Member of the NEXPRESSO Project by following MEMBERSHIP -> Sign Up.
