Photonics is one of the key enabling technologies which can boost the European competitive leverage worldwide with new high value added products.
The young optoelectronic industry has critical mass and already impacts for more than the 10% on the European economy, employing 290.000 people and guarantees a stable double digit growth in current and coming years.

white’R is a necessary action to translate this RTD excellence into future leadership in manufacturing high value added optoelectronic devices. The new manufacturing concept is based on the combination of fully automated, self contained, white room modules whose components – robots, end effectors, transport, handling and tooling systems – are conceived as Plug-n-produce mechatronic sub-modules properly configured coherently with the production requirements.
The project idea is to develop an integrated modular solution consisting of a physical production cell empowered by an innovative software infrastructure for the production of high value added optoelectronic components.more info
The project goal is to design, implement and build white’R by accomplishing a set of scientific and technological objectives. The achievement of white’R objectives is structured in a 3 years.more info
white’R industrial partners heavily contribute in identifying and analyzing the data of actual production contexts in order to evaluating the potential improvements to be pursued.more info
