PhotonDelta Foundation is looking for a Content Manager to help accelerate the integrated photonics industry in the Netherlands.

Are you someone that is curious about the latest technology and wants to make an impact on the world we live in? PhotonDelta is looking for a content manager to help boost the emerging industry of photonic integrated circuits (PICs): a groundbreaking technology that pushes the boundaries of digital innovation. 

Who is PhotonDelta?

The way we live, work, and relate to one another is profoundly changing, requiring us to rebalance demands for better lifestyles with the world’s limited resources. From ecological agriculture that can feed the growing world population to the advanced health monitoring systems enabling continuum of care, all backed by a growing appetite for data within our 24/7 connected lives. Addressing fundamental societal changes requires radically different systems than those we are using today. 
Photonic Integrated Chips is a key enabling technology that is revolutionizing a wide range of industries. By using light instead of electricity, photonic integrated circuits can sense, capture, process and transmit data in a cheaper, faster, lighter, greener, more robust and reliable way.

As a pioneer in the manipulation of light and with a bright history of innovation, The Netherlands is at the forefront of the groundbreaking integrated photonics industry. PhotonDelta was set up by mandate of the Dutch government to support and accelerate the emerging Dutch integrated photonics industry. PhotonDelta builds an ecosystem of organizations that can design, develop and manufacture world-class innovative solutions based on integrated photonic technology. Within the ecosystem, PhotonDelta actively connects with the EU, Dutch government, provinces, regions and similar photonics ecosystems in Europe, North America and Asia.

 Why does the world need photonic chips?

As a pioneer in the manipulation of light and with a bright history of innovation, the Netherlands is at the forefront of the integrated photonics industry. PhotonDelta was created by mandate of the Dutch government in December 2018 to accelerate the emerging Dutch integrated photonics industry and was granted € 240 million to execute the national plan for photonics.
In order to accelerate this industry, PhotonDelta builds an ecosystem of organizations that is able to design, develop and manufacture world-class innovative solutions based on integrated photonic technology. PhotonDelta actively supports its partners with coaching, funding and access to market. We also promote the adoption of photonic integrated chips worldwide, engaging with a variety of industries as well as the academic world.
