It is worth mentioning, that due to the long-lasting research of scientific teams in Lublin, as well as many activities taken in the field of photonics nowadays, Lubelskie is a region where photonics occupies a special place. Thanks to many years of experience, it is possible to constantly expand cooperation with new partners representing both scientific and research units as well as entrepreneurs. The development of photonic technologies has a direct impact on the development of all smart specialisations of the region. Regional authorities undertake various types of initiatives supporting development of photonics. One of the major examples is the Joint Venture implemented together with the National Centre for Research and Development named “Lublin Upland of Photonic Technologies”. This initiative offers support for industrial research and development in the field of photonic technologies.
