ACTPHAST (Access CenTer for PHotonics innovAtion Solutions and Technology Support) is a unique “one-stop-shop” for supporting photonics innovation by European companies, which is financially supported by the European Commission under the FP7 framework (Grant Agreement No. 619205).

ACTPHAST supports and accelerates the innovation capacity of European companies by providing them with direct access to the expertise and state-of-the-art facilities of Europe's leading photonics research centres (the ACTPHAST Partners), enabling companies to exploit the tremendous commercial potential of applied photonics. There are 23 research institutes who together make up the ACTPHAST Partners.

JePPIX participates in ACTPHAST to enable open access to Europe's InP photonic integration capability.
