Abstract
In this talk I will describe some of the ways in which we have attempted to take some of the developments in basic science from the laboratory bench through to activities that have an economic impact on the wider world.
I will discuss some of the vehicles that have been set up to help pull trough technology to the marketplace including the Institute of Photonics, the Centre for Biophotonics and some businesses. I will also describe some new projects that will have an economic impact including the Scottish universities’ collaboration with Stanford and the establishment of the Fraunhofer Centre for Applied Photonics in Glasgow.
