Business Networking & Events

Cardiff University engages with business through a range of events, from seminars and lectures to workshops, exhibitions and tailored networking events. These may be held by individual Schools or Research Institutions or via fora such as Cardiff University Innovation Network.

Cardiff University Innovation Network
The Innovation Network is the University’s principal outreach to local innovative business. Created in 1996, the Network is one of the most established and popular business networking organisations in Wales.

“A highly regarded network between the University, Welsh companies and business intermediaries. This initiative is frequently held up as a prime example of best practice in this field of activity.” The National Assembly for Wales.

Since its creation, over 1,000 people have attended the 100+ events run for local businesses and innovators. Around ten events are held each year with ca 100 people from a variety of business backgrounds attending each event. The Network also hosts a busy YouTube channel bristling with useful resource as well as virtual events and discussion groups via Linked In and news bites through Twitter.
