Postgraduate Research on Dilute Metamorphic Nanostructures and Metamaterials in Semiconductor Photonics

Photonics, nanotechnology, advanced materials, and advanced manufacturing technologies have been identified as key enabling technologies for a diverse range of application areas and today the photonics global market alone is around €300 billion. PROMIS (Postgraduate Research on on Dilute Metamorphic Nanostructures and Metamaterials in Semiconductor Photonics) is an Initial Training Network funded by the EU Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, which aims to train the next generation of photonics researchers in the full range of skills required for a multi-disciplinary, industry-focused career in photonics.

The PROMIS network brings together a carefully-chosen, well-balanced consortium of 8 academic partners, 2 industry partners and 9 associated partners, with European and worldwide reputations as leaders in their fields. The network will train a cohort of 15 early stage researchers the full range of skills required for a career in photonics, including materials growth, device fabrication, characterisation, design, theory, and commercialisation.

These skills will be applied in developing advanced photonic materials and devices for four application areas: Information and Communications, Security, Energy and Environment. Each researcher will experience both academic and commercial environments thanks to the strong industrial involvement, resulting in multi-skilled, industry-focused graduates. See the Project Overview page for more. This website will continue to be updated with new information, so please check back regularly.

The network funds 16 PhD positions, with the prestige and attractive financial package that comes with being a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow.

PROMIS inspires local community to discover science in Horizon 2020 joint event!

On Saturday, 7th October, PROMIS teamed up with fellow H2020 project IDEAS to showcase our latest research to the general public as part of the nationwide Fun Palaces initiative.
