Industrial Seminar Series

EPSRC CDT PIADS Industrial Seminar Series

We invite all current and potential Partners to engage with our CDT and respective Universities by taking part in our ongoing Industrial Seminar Series.

We run this series to create a platform for engagement and knowledge exchange between our key stakeholders. Students and staff (both CDT-associated and University-wide) benefit from the networking opportunity to meet company representatives for a focused networking and exchange of ideas. In return, Partners are able to promote and disseminate state of the art technical developments at their company and highlight opportunities for employment and/or collaborative research projects.  

Seminars run several times a year and are based at the University of Glasgow in Semester 1 and Queen's University Belfast in Semester 2. The format involves a lunch reception and 45-minute seminar, followed by a 15-minute discussion session. 

Any company representatives wishing to take part in this Series can contact the CDT External Engagement Manager, Caryn Hughes, to make arrangements.  

Previous Participants; Kelvin Nanotechnology, Thales, Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology, Compound Semiconductor Centre, Compound Semiconductor Technologies Global, II-VI Laser Enterprise
