Outline Sessions

If you’ve attended CoInnovate previously, you will know that there are two main areas of focus for this flag-ship event; emerging technologies and collaborative innovation!

This year is even more exciting – as the compound semiconductor technology cluster is moving from a vision to a reality, we need to think ahead collectively. We’re proudly supporting CS Connected at the upcoming conference in exploring collaborative approaches to supply chains, technology development and commercialisation.

Please email us at coinnovate@iqep.com if you are interested in speaking at CoInnovate 2018 or if you have a challenge that you’d like to share with the innovator community. We are running an open call for challenges until 30 November – don’t miss out!
