The Photonics Leadership Group collects and disseminates input from the full spectrum of UK photonics industry to provide expert informed guidance to government, support agencies, users and developers of photonics to highlight opportunities for maximising the growth and adoption of this key enabling technology.
The PLG welcomes input from industry leaders from across the full spectrum of those developing and applying photonics in the UK, from component suppliers to integrated system manufacturers. We are especially grateful to the following stakeholders for their regular input.
If you are interested in becoming a regular stakeholder, attending ~3 meetings per year and reviewing PLG recommendations and outputs, please contact us. Stakeholders are asked for a voluntary contribution to offset the costs of operating the PLG, although membership no one is excluded if they are unable to contribute.
Each PLG meeting is attended by 25-30 people from the following pool of organisations with 50-60% of those attending every meeting being senior managers at UK manufacturers based throughout the country. The PLG is a voluntary organisation and we are grateful to everyone who has contributed their time to championing the cause of photonics in the UK and provided venues time and support to the group.
