Hidden Economic Engine

In partnership with the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) and the Photonics Leadership Group (PLG), we have launched a report uncovering the UK’s £12.9BN hidden photonics manufacturing industry underpinning most of the products and services that we all use on a daily basis.

‘UK Photonics: The Hidden Economic Engine’ was released on 16 May 2018 to coincide with UNESCO’s International Day of Light, and expands on figures reported in 2017. The report is available to read here.
