The LEAPS-INNOV pilot project focusses on the implementation of new strategies and activities for long-term partnerships between industry and the European light sources, synchrotrons and free-electron lasers, with their tens of thousands of users.
LEAPS-INNOV aims at kick-starting the implementation of the LEAPS Technology Roadmap and, at the same time, at fostering a partnership with European industry through open innovation. It will offer joint technological developments and advanced research capabilities with LEAPS members for industry as collaborator, supplier and user.
The 16 member organisations of LEAPS form the core of the consortium. They are world leading in providing high-level services to the science community by operating 21 accelerator-based light sources across Europe.
In the context of open innovation, LEAPS-INNOV focusses on new approaches for partnership between industry and the photon science community, with the goal of accumulating a strategy for long-term industry engagement for LEAPS in Europe.
LEAPS – the League of European Accelerator-based Photon Sources – is a strategic consortium initiated by the Directors of the Synchrotron Radiation and Free Electron Laser user facilities in Europe.
