This event is designed for photonics and electronics companies who are considering a research collaboration to harness the innovation opportunities of III-nitride semiconductors.

Join us in Sheffield on Monday 13th January 2020 to discover more about:

  • our latest technology and research insights
  • our world-class facilities
  • funding opportunities and support for collaborative R&D from The University of Sheffield
  • sponsoring PhD studentships through our new Centre for Doctoral Training


The Centre for GaN Materials and Devices is part of the EPSRC Future Compound Semiconductor Manufacturing Hub which aims to establish the UK as the primary global research and manufacturing Hub for Compound Semiconductor technologies. We’ll also be training future scientists and engineers as a partner institution (with Cardiff University, The University of Manchester and UCL) for the new EPSRC Centre for Doctoral training in Compound Semiconductor Manufacturing.
