This exclusive invitation is your opportunity to get the inside track on the latest developments and how your company can benefit.

Compound semiconductors are driving future technologies. From the connected world, the Internet of Things to robotics, autonomous vehicles and healthcare technologies, compound semiconductors are and will continue to impact the way we live, work and spend our leisure time. Compound semiconductors (CS) are the enabling technology for 21st century life.

With around £300m of investment committed to date, the United Kingdom Government, the devolved Welsh Government, the EPSRC, Cardiff University and private investors have come together with industry leaders IQE, SPTS, Newport Wafer Fab and Microsemi to establish the world’s first Compound Semiconductor cluster, with its hub in South Wales – CS Connected.

CS Connected unites international businesses, policymakers and academics who are building next-generation technology that can position Wales as a world-leader.

This event will introduce CS Connected and explore the opportunities this major investment brings for organisations. This Wales Festival of Innovation ‘Innovation Mission’ brings together key players from each of the components that make up the cluster including:

  • Chris Meadows, IQE plc
  • Dr Wyn Meredith, Compound Semiconductor Centre
  • Dr Andy Sellars, Compound Semiconductor Applications Catapult
  • Sam Evans, Newport Wafer Fab
  • This is your opportunity to find out more about the cluster and the opportunities for your company to work with them, and to network with like-minded businesses.
