The European Commission is once again supporting us with the attribution of an ERC-Proof of Concept grant, to accelerate the go-to-market of curved detectors and related wide field imaging systems.
Pillar II of the ERC-STG-ICARUS aimed at paving the way to a common use of curved and deformable detectors for cost-effective imaging systems, through prototyping and recommendation for mass production. The next steps towards commercialisation and industrialisation are proposed in this PoC project to:
- improve repeatability,
- prepare industrialisation,
- realise market studies and
- outline a business plan.
We create the start-up CURVE-ONE for the valorisation towards scientific instrumentation and amateur astronomy
