CPE (Centre for Photonics Expertise) are hosting an Innovation Conference with special guests from from the ASTUTE 2020 project (Advanced manufacturing) and SPARC II project (Photovoltaic), alongside keynote speakers from QioptiQ, IQE and BAE Systems. This will be taking place on Thursday 5th March at the OpTIC Centre, St Asaph.
The event aims to demonstrate how new technology can aid and assist businesses in Wales to become more competitive, innovative, and most importantly, sustainable in today’s global market place.
This event will demonstrate the many business benefits by using case studies from industrial partners to highlight the innovation created, along with a Q & A opportunity. There will also be an opportunity for industry to suggest ideas and requirements for future collaborations.
WHAT IS CPE?
The Centre for Photonics Expertise, CPE, aims to accelerate business growth by working together with industry in supporting the development of processes, products or systems through the medium of photonic technology.
UK photonics technology is recognised as burgeoning industry, with annual growth rates of 5-9%, and currently contributes over £13.5 billion to the UK economy and is set to expand further through its vital role in enabling critical innovations and increased sustainability across all industry sectors.
WHAT IS SPARC II?
The purpose of this research funding is to build research capacity in solar photovoltaic research, to ensure that the SPARC II team can attract substantial competitive research funding that will enable new research partnerships for ground breaking research and lead to effective technology transfer in the future.
The research will seek added value solutions to these technology challenges that will provide new manufacturing and supply opportunities for Welsh industry.
WHAT IS ASTUTE 2020?
ASTUTE 2020 (Advanced Sustainable Manufacturing Technologies) is demand-led by industry. A collaborative program to assist companies of all sizes discover and advanced Materials Technology, Computational Engineering Modelling or Manufacturing Systems Engineering. In summary help companies embrace Industry 4.0 the fourth industrial revolution and deliver sustainability and economic benefit across Wales.
