Why attend

Building on strong ties between the UK and Netherlands, we want to explore the future potential of Semiconductor enabled Photonics markets with the aim of exploring collaborative opportunities for developing and exploiting new technologies.


High Tech NL

High Tech NL is the branch association of the Dutch high tech industry consisting of 200+ members, both companies (OEM, SME and start-ups) and knowledge institutes. High Tech NL is committed to the collective interests of the sector, with a focus on long-term innovation and international collaboration. Members share their knowledge, look for ways to cooperate and use the powerful network to become more successful innovators.

In order to strengthen the network, High Tech NL works together with more than 40 other networks, development companies, interest groups and clusters both in the Netherlands and abroad. To share specific knowledge, each member participates in one or more of the three clusters: Holland Robotics, Holland Semiconductors and Holland Life Science Technologies.


CSconnected is the collective brand for a growing number of advanced semiconductor related activities in Wales, home to a unique community of academic institutions, prototyping facilities and global, high-volume manufacturing capabilities that collaborate across a range of research and innovation programs. CSconnected is uniquely positioned to develop a global advantage in a sovereign, key enabling technology which will allow Wales and the UK to increase trade globally in critical sectors such as 5G communications, autonomous and electric vehicles, advanced medical devices, and consumer electronics of the future. 

In 2020, CSconnected received government funding provided through UK Research and Innovation’s flagship Strength in Places Fund (SIPF). The 55-month CSconnected SIPF project has a total value of £43million, supported by £25million of UKRI funds. It builds on Wales's regional strengths and integrates research excellence with a unique regional supply chain in compound semiconductor manufacturing.
