In order to become active for our members beyond the boundaries of technology and region, we rely on strong partners and solid alliances.
Technology Clusters Central Germany
We maintain close relations with the technology clusters at regional level and try to establish contacts in the user industries through suitable formats.
OptoNet is part of the supra-regional networking initiative OptecNet Deutschland e.V., in which a total of eight German photonics clusters have joined forces to create a powerful, joint structure at both federal and international level. They represent a total of more than 500 players in the German photonics industry.
Global Photonics Alliance
We maintain close contacts with international photonics clusters and coordinate cooperation via the Global Photonics Alliance GPA, a networking initiative which is significantly advanced by OptoNet.
We are connected with the German Industry Association for Optics, Photonics, Analytical and Medical Technology SPECTARIS via a partnership agreement and cooperate in supra-regional fields of activity in the interest of our members.
