COVID-19

To tackle COVID-19 European governments are imposing restrictions on our daily activities for the foreseeable future. As individuals, and as a community, we have a shared responsibility to follow the latest public advice as strictly as possible to tackle the spread of COVID-19. 
At a time of global crisis, the  PICTURE consortium  is rising to the challenge. We are now working from home and most of our laboratories and clean room complexes are closed. 
It is not business as usual but our business does not stop.
We have a unique opportunity to think, to progress our work via innovative design and modelling, to write papers , and to use digital technology to engage with the community in innovative ways. Our operations have swiftly migrated online and we will update our partners and collaborators on effective ways of working with us as appropriate.
We are proud of the fact that over many decades our contributions to the global internet are helping keep the world running through this difficult time. It is a timely reminder that connectivity provides resilience and we are redoubling our efforts to ensure that that the next generation of optoelectronic hardware is available when we need it.
We are enormously grateful to our sponsors and staff for bearing with us in these difficult times. Your generous support and positive energy ensure our community continues to thrive.
