Welcome to CoInnovate, an industry-led initiative designed to bring the world’s leading innovators and academics together in the spirit of collaboration to tackle industry challenges and create value in the marketplace.

Opportunities, Technology, Collaboration

CoInnovate works with leading industries and the Welsh Government to identify opportunities for collaborative R&D in the pre-prototype stages of the TRL scale. As a sector-agnostic initiative, CoInnovate brings together capabilities across supply chains to form communities with shared technology interests and collaborative working groups that can scope out projects to address industry challenges.

CoInnovate is particularly focused on creating pull-through into applications for technologies such as sensing, novel devices and materials, IoT and comms, machine learning and AI.

Innovators have the chance to connect and discuss opportunities through focused roundtable workshops and the flagship CoInnovate conference.

CoInnovate and CSconnected

The compound semiconductor industry is revolutionising our lives and with the World’s first compound semiconductor cluster, CSconnected taking shape in South Wales, this is an exciting time to bring technology developers with end-users of CS technologies. Take a look at the CSconnected website and the CoInnovateCS conference website for more information.






CoInnovate 2020 Conference

Collaborative Innovation for a Smarter, Greener, Healthier Future

We are facing unprecedented challenges globally. With the climate crisis reportedly approaching a point of no-return, decarbonisation and net-zero technologies are high on the agenda worldwide. Societies realise that we must prioritise the well-being of future generations. Access to data is virtually limitless and competition is strong in almost every sector amidst frugal fiscal policies.

The solution to these challenges will come from collaboration across sectors and supply chains. We need new and clever use of technologies to build a sustainable future, driven by smarter, greener and healthier platforms.

The CoInnovate 2020 Conference Committee includes like-minded industry members working in technology and innovation, who are keen to foster external collaborations with SMEs and academia for mutual benefit.

The one-day, free-to-attend, conference will take place in the Autumn of 2020 and brings together industry, academia, government and investors in the spirit of collaboration. Offering a packed agenda with challenges, presentations, discussions and pitches, CoInnovate 2020 is a flag-ship event for the innovator community.
