Vinnova funds Adopticum project



On the first of november Adopticum started the project named ”Sensors to reach the vision; No man under ground”. This project is financed by the Swedish Innovation Agency Vinnova. The objective is to identify one or several ideas aimed towards strengthening an efficient production in the mining industry, but also other industries. At the end of the project Adopticum will have gathered a constellation of problem owners and machine manufacturers that have agreed to participate in phase two of the project where the ideas will be taken forward towards a solution.

Workshop with LTU and KTUAS

Workshop with LTU and KTUAS


On Thursday september 22nd Adopticum attended a workshop with Luleå Tekniska Universitet and Kemi-Tornio University of Applied Sciences in Kemi, Finland.


The objective was to discuss how university collaboration with SME´s in triple helix projects can result in more products put on the market and new startups.


The three organisations has earlier worked together in Interreg supported projects where the objective has been to develop technical demonstrators to solve specific measurement related problems known to the process industry.


The workshop resulted in a plan for how the organisations can continue their efforts to reach the overall goal of supporting the process industry, product developing companies and society at large by turning research into products ready for industrialisation. 

Optics in Dinolab

This Monday we arranged a workshop in Skellefteå together with DinoLab (Digitala Idéplatser Norr). The topic was how the regional knowledge within optics could be utilised by advertising agencies and the digital entertainment industry. Adopticum has some experience of such cooperation through the project Woodbot Pilots, which was a very interesting collaboration where all parts got the opportunity to learn from each other.


During the workshop Emil Hällstig from Adopticum presented some of the optic industry in Skellefteå together with examples of how optics can be used to bridge the digital and physical worlds. Some of the examples of cool projects from the web are also shown below. Many wild ideas were discussed during the workshop, ranging from creating paintings that change when someone walks past them to interactive storefront and virtual fitting rooms. We’ll see if this will result in any new projects based on this type of collaboration.

Laser 2011


The leading industry and research within photonics met last week in Munich at LASER World of PHOTONICS 2011. The biannual trade fair and scientific conference was arranged for the 20th time and with a new record of participants and exhibitors, 27500 visitors and 1100 exhibitors. The conference covers a broad range of optical techniques and especially interesting was the sessions focused on industrial optical metrology. As usual the conference made it possible to meet with a lot of old and new scientists within this topic. At the trade fair the focus was on different types of lasers, ranging from small laser diodes to strong lasers for welding and drilling.

During the opening day The Federal Ministry of Education and Research in Germany unveiled its promotional package “Photonics Research Germany”. Optical technologies are held to be one of the most important key technologies of the future and a total of one billion Euros was announced for the next ten years to promote research and development in the photonics sector. Germany is definitely raising their investments in photonic research!
