ALPHA-RLH Route des Lasers et des Hyperfréquences

ALPHA - Route des Lasers & des Hyperfréquences (ALPHA-RLH) is a newly formed technology cluster specializing in photonics, lasers and microwave technologies. It is the result of a merger on 1st January 2017 between two French competitiveness clusters, Route des Lasers and Elopsys.

Based in Bordeaux and Limoges, the cluster is focused on 2 technological fields: Photonics-Laser (laser sources and processes, optical components, instrumentation) and Microwave (integrated electronics, radiocommunication systems, radar systems) and 4 strategic applications:

- Health (medical devices and autonomy): imaging, diagnosis and therapy techniques, technological solutions for people who have lost their independence,

- Communication and security: components or systems for data transmission, data and network security,

- Aerospace and defence: embedded optical/optoelectronic systems, innovative solutions for shaping materials, communication, navigation, and lighting,

- Energy and smart building: solar technology, lighting solutions, energy efficiency, energy storage, connecting or connected devices for buildings.

 

Digital technology represents a cross-disciplinary activity. It covers digital interfaces, image processing and synthesis, data security and sharing, along with intelligent connecting objects.

Through aggregate skills and expertise, ALPHA-RLH aims to become the French reference cluster in photonics, lasers and microwave technologies. It will enable the cluster to bring out innovation collaborative projects and enrich the support provided to SME members exporting to global markets.

Reinforcing Cyber Security in the EU: Building Coordinated Security, Confidence and Capability in the Cyber Domain

With 315 million Europeans using the internet each day, the provision of critical services and the functioning of a modern economy are now entirely dependent upon the robustness and safety of cyberspace and its infrastructure. Cyber security attacks are a growing source of threat and concern, while also representing a growing economic opportunity for Europe, with the market predicted to be worth over $100 Billion by 2018 (European Commission). Moreover, cyber attacks in the EU are constantly growing in both their frequency (quintuplicate between 2013 and 2017) and sophistication.
