Laser LT Digital Innovation Hub (Laser LT DIH)
The vision of LaserLT DIH is to become the strongest one-stop-shop on lasers, photonics and advanced manufacturing in Northern-East part of Europe through the development of three main pillars:
- Competence in laser technologies (FTMC DLT) – member of APPOLO HUB;
- Business support and access to finance (Science and Technology Park);
- Access to industry (LITEK™ cluster).
The mission of the Laser LT DIH is through cooperation in R&D to develop, validate and provide for manufacturing SMEs the world-class laser and engineering technologies. Services provided by DIH will be research, development, designing, prototyping, pre-production, the attraction of funds, market research, incubation and commercialization. Pilot lines combining laser technologies with complementary ones are under construction to speed up the technology transfer to SMEs. Connections with similar DIHs on laser-based manufacturing and advanced manufacturing is started. APPOLO HUB is an initial point. The regional network of DIHs for local industry support is under discussion.
