Silicon photonics allow for faster data transfers and increased energy efficiency. While several European research and technology organisations have started developing state-of-the-art pilot lines for this technology, industrial capacity is largely missing. Silicon photonic chips are expected to play a key role in accelerating the EU’s digital transition.

The industry associations Association for European NanoElectronics ActivitieS (AENEAS), European Technology Platform on Smart Systems Integration (EPoSS) and Inside – with the support of the European Commission – are organising a workshop to explore silicon photonics and its future applications. The event will take place on 30 March between 14.00 – 16.30, under the 2022 Work Programme of the Key Digital Technologies Joint Undertaking (KDT JU).

The workshop aims to collect feedback from the European ECS and photonics communities on a proposed KDT JU focus topic on ‘Industrial supply chain for silicon photonics’. It will be a next step in a process towards the industrialisation of silicon photonics in Europe for a broad area of future applications.
