CAPPA - Centre for Advanced Photonics and Process Analysis - Cork

CAPPA's researchers have a strong track record of engagement with industry. Early collaborations centred on activities in our Photonic Material & Devices Strand and as a consequence was primarily with the photonics sector. The seed funding provided by Enterprise Ireland through the Applied Research Enhancement Programme facilitated CAPPA's involvement with a wide variety of new sectors including Medical Devices & Technologies, Pharmaceuticals, Electronics and Food Technology while consolidating our interaction with the Photonics sector. With photonics now positioned as a key enabling technology there is scope for CAPPA to bring value to a wide range of manufacturing and product design sectors outside of those identified above.


Benefits of Partnership

Experience of R&D projects within regulated environments: ISO, FDA, CE Mark, cGMP & cGAMP. Successful track record in securing both research and industrial funding. CAPPA technology has been commercially licensed.
