Our company invests in research as a part of its corporate growth strategy. Our R&D efforts have resulted to novel prototypes some of which are commercialised by our company. Our skilled personnel has long experience in Project Management and has been involved in many National and European R&D projects (ESPRIT, RACE, COST, STAR, KONVER, PENED, PAVE, FP7).
Most recently the company’s determination to be actively involved in the European and National research landscape led to five major research endeavours.
Our team is involved in three FP7 Call-8 projects, namely
and one FP-7 Call-11 INSPACE (www.ict-inspace.eu).
There is also a participation in the National Research Project PANDA (“Asymmetric Passive Optical Network for xDSL and FTTH Access”) related to GPON-XGPON technologies and FTTH access (http://panda.cti.gr/index.php/en/).
The activities of these Projects are related to fiber optics and photonics technology for Photonic Integrated Circuits (PIC), Coherent Transmission, Superchannel Flexible Networking and Space Division Multiplexing (SDM) for FTTH and most Advanced PON architectures and technologies.
We can also contribute, should this be required, with significant expertise in Coordination of up to 10 partner consortiums and large scale industry projects and collaborative research projects.
Our Role and Scientific Competence in Research Projects brings into the projects activities as Design and Development of New Technologies and Product Development along with Exploitation and Commercialisation Practices including Marketing and Media Channels and Business Plan modelling.
