Funding from the UK Research Partnership Investment Fund will underpin the Compound Semiconductor Research Foundation – the first of its kind in the UK, with potential to become one of the leading clusters in Europe.

Earmarked for the University's Innovation Campus, the Foundation will drive the testing and development of ground-breaking technology that lies behind global 'megatrends' including smart phones and tablets, powering change across sectors including healthcare, biotechnology and mass communications.

The award adds to £12 million already pledged by Welsh Government to support the Foundation. The funding will strengthen bonds between Cardiff headquartered IQE Plc, the leading global compound semiconductor wafer supplier, and the university.

The UKRPIF award will put Cardiff University at the cutting edge of semiconductor technology.
