About us

Polish Technology Platform for Photonics was established on 27 February 2013.


The initiative to establish the Platform is a joint undertaking of companies, scientific units, agencies, associations and funds operating in Poland in the field of photonics.


The purpose of the EU initiative to build European Technology Platforms was to achieve significant effects of economic growth by initiating and implementing innovative activities in public and private partnership. By facing scientific and technical challenges specified in the Europe 2020 Strategy and in Polish strategic documents regarding the development of the country, at present photonics is one of EU key technologies.


PPTF is an open membership institution and new members may join it at any time. PPTF members may include organisational units involved in scientific or business activity or government, self-government or non-government organisations related to photonics or declaring operation in favour of development of photonics in Poland.




“The mission is to increase the innovativeness of the Polish photonic industry by coordinating the actions of Polish businesses, scientific units, government and local authorities and non-governmental organisations related to the development of new technologies and opto-electronic products, improvement of staff qualifications and the extension of the range of applications of photonic technologies in Poland.”




“By 2030, Polish photonics is expected to become an influential and widely recognised European provider of key technologies and innovative products designed for use in national industry and in international markets, which is the result of the dynamic development of opto-electronics and photonics in Poland.“




‘Photonic technology as a stimulus to the development of modern industry in Poland’.


Aims of establishing PPTF:


  • establish cooperation in the field of photonics between creators and customers of technologies by initiating and conducting scientific and technical as well as market research and by commercialisation of studies;
  • increase competitiveness and innovativeness of Poland through effective transfer of high-tech technology from research centres to companies;
  • erovide Consortium Members with easier access to funding sources and assist in applying for funds from the EU and national agencies;
  • join european and national programmes connected with photonics;
  • focus research studies on the area of photonics and integrate operations of companies, agencies, associations and regional authorities in the area of photonics technologies;
  • introduce new photonics technologies into the Polish market;
  • facilitate cooperation between Consortium Members as well as between Consortium Members and external institutions, including foreign institutions;
  • overcome administrative barriers and support development of law which is friendly to entrepreneurs and scientific entities and limit the risk of operation of innovative companies;
  • achieve the synergy effect through joint operations;
  • increase the resources of knowledge and skills of Consortium Members;
  • facilitate informal contacts and access to scientific, technical and business information;
  • promote the offers of Consortium Members.
