DIHP Pitch 2022: Pitch your Ideas and boost your Endeavours with Photonics!

The Digital Innovation Hub Photonics (DIHP) aims to promote innovative research projects in Thuringia. The successful project at the Beutenberg Campus in Jena has now been expanded to include four new partners.The consortium includes the Abbe Center of Photonics and invites idea teams, startups and SMEs to present their innovative projects. Research budgets can be won for applications of optics and photonics, e.g. in biophotonics. The deadline for registration is December 14th. Here is the call: 

You have ideas? Great!

You have ideas that can be developed further with photonics, and you are looking for support in their conceptual and technological implementation? Even better.

Then participate in the DIHP Pitch enabled by Thüringer Aufbaubank. The pitch will take place on January 12th, 2023.

The Digital Innovation Hub Photonics (DIHP) supports everyone with founding intentions, researchers and founders, start-ups and SMEs in the development of (marketable) technologies and demonstrators in optics, photonics, and beyond, especially with applications in life sciences and medicine. You can win up to 6 person-months of research support at one of the five research institutes.

lf you are interested, please send your application to dihp@iof.fraunhofer.de (Dr. Sebastian Händschke and Eleonore Roderfeld) by December 14th, 2022.

About the DIHP

The Digital Innovation Hub Photonics (DIHP) is a project of the Free State of Thuringia funded by the Ministry of Economy, Science and Digital Society (TMWWDG). It is intended to support start-ups and spin-offs in the fields of optics and photonics at Jena's Beutenberg Campus. The project began in early 2019 and is based at the Photonics Performance Center of the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering (IOF) and at the Institute of Applied Physics (IAP) of the Friedrich Schiller University Jena. Currently, eight teams are supervised at DIHP in these institutes, six of which have already established a company. The DIHP works closely with other partners in Central Germany such as the Stiftung für Technologie, Innovation und Forschung Thüringen (STIFT) and Optonet e.V.. In the current phase, the TMWWDG is providing funding of around 1.2 million euros for the DIHP project until the end of 2023.
