The “Grand Programme de Recherche” (GPR) LIGHT aims at amplifying the dynamics initiated by our community to promote the development of high-impact research in light sciences and applications and to place it at the forefront of international excellence. With its 200 faculty members and researchers, the consortium applying for this program is being built with the initial community of the cluster of Excellence LAPHIA largely extended to new groups of materials science, chemistry and biology. This consortium has been consolidated through the creation of an “Ecole Universitaire de Recherche” LIGHTS&T (EUR). It possesses both the critical mass, interdisciplinary expertise and complementarity necessary to meet the challenges mentioned above. It now aims at launching a comprehensive initiative GPR/EUR LIGHT, combining research and graduate education, which will elevate the Bordeaux campus to a major campus of photonics sciences. The GPR will address 3 major scientific challenges, to bring photonics and quantum technologies to the level of integration:

- The successful integration of any new technology requires downsizing/downscaling to facilitate its deployment in many different environments.

- Tomorrow's light emitting, detecting and switching devices must have optimized efficiencies and performance at all scales from single molecules to large systems.

- The next revolution in photonics is in "all in one" materials and quantum devices. This leads to the emergence of single or multi-material components combining/Hybridizing several functions. Moreover, the combination of imaging modalities opens a new era for understanding biological processes in unprecedented detail and for designing tomorrow’s solutions.
