Description

 

Dutch Optics Centre is an initiative of TNO and TU Delft aimed at boosting Dutch industry in the field of optics and optomechatronics by increased utilisation of Dutch science through joint R&D. The Netherlands are unique in the field of optics and opto-mechatronics, with a leading position in science and industry.

Within Dutch Optics Centre TU Delft, TNO and other knowledge institutes providing excellent research facilities team up with a world class manufacturing industry; producing opto-mechanical components for high-precision products like satellites, telescopes, microscopes, inspection instruments.

By joining forces in R&D, developing prototypes and eventually forming product consortia we create a strong Dutch optomechanical ecosystem that benefits both industry and science. This initiative is well aligned with the Dutch government’s ambition for large-scale Public-Private Partnerships. Dutch Optics Centre is a consortium of knowledge institutes and more than 20 High Tech companies from all over the Netherlands.
