Current ESR Projects

Photonics, nanotechnology, advanced materials and advanced manufacturing techniques 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 Dilute Metamorphic Nanostructures and Metamaterials in Semiconductor Photonics) is an Initial Training Network funded by the EU Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions. The PROMIS network brings together a well-balanced consortium of 10 academic institutions and 8 industry partners from across Europe having worldwide reputations as leaders in their respective fields.

The network will train a cohort of 15 early stage researchers in 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.
