We bring together people, companies and knowledge to inspire and look for business opportunities. Meet the photonics ecosystem during events, meetups and trade missions. We inspire each other during workshops and together we envision the future for optics by setting the national photonics agenda.


We offer professional education for people with no optical background and for optical engineers who want to improve their skills. We will want to share our passion for optical design during training, workshops and master classes.


We offer industry driven joint-research on emerging optical technologies by easy access to all universities and phd’s. Having have an overview of the field of photonics together we develop new knowledge and knowhow for future products.


From product ideas to prototyping and small series production we jointly develop new products. Together with industry we build consortia and do business development.


Helping you stay ahead of the curve, Dutch Optics Centre supports companies in the market introduction of the new products. Besides we stimulate incubator activities in the broad field of photonics.
