Dutch Optics Centre
The Netherlands are unique in the field of optics and opto-mechatronics, with a leading position in science and industry. Within Dutch Optics Centre TU Delft, TNO and other knowledge institutes providing excellent research facilities team up with a world class manufacturing industry; producing opto-mechanical components for high-precision products like satellites, telescopes, microscopes, inspection instruments.
By joining forces in R&D, developing prototypes and eventually forming product consortia they create a strong Dutch optomechanical ecosystem that benefits both industry and science. This initiative is well aligned with the Dutch government’s ambition for large-scale Public-Private Partnerships. Dutch Optics Centre is a consortium of knowledge institutes and more than 20 High Tech companies from all over the Netherlands. The Center builds on the strong position of optics and opto-mechatronics in the Netherlands, both scientifically and industrially. Thanks to founders such as Huygens and Van Leeuwenhoek, the Netherlands has had a strong scientific position in this field for centuries.
