Our initiative to establish a Lichtwerkstatt at ACP was fostered by an Open Photonics call issued by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). Together with our partners Fraunhofer IOF Jena and the University of Applied Sciences Mainz, ACP runs a three-year BMBF-funded project exploring completely new ideas in innovation processes in photonics. The Lichtwerkstatt is supposed to generate new forms of collaborations between companies, universities and students in order to involve a broad group of people in the innovation processes of photonics. We have built an Open Photonics Makerspace equipped with various tools as a creative place where the exchange of ideas as well as shared projects are focussed. In addition to employees of the companies and scientists, especially our students of the Master's degree programs of physics, photonics, IT sciences and media management are expected to the main participants in the Lichtwerkstatt.
