Photonics Asia Study
Executive Report by EAC
In Europe, Photonics has been selected by the European Commission as one of six Key Enabling Technologies (KETs). KETs are expected to be the main driving force behind the future development of the European industry and are therefore of great interest from both a political and economic perspective. In order to have a better understanding of how globally competitive Asian countries support their local Photonics industry, SPECTARIS, VDMA and an Industrial Steering Committee – supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research – initiated a study to analyze political steering processes in Asia.
