Dr Hazel Hung
As Programme Manager, I support the delivery of CSconnected SIPF to UKRI across the 12 partners. CSconnected SIPF is a UKRI Strength in Places Fund (SIPF) project, led by Cardiff University, that is building on regional strengths in advanced semiconductor materials and manufacturing. It will help South Wales’ compound semiconductor industry to create 3,000 jobs by 2025, increase its direct contribution to the local economy to £265m per year, and improve skills among local people. It will also give the UK a global advantage in technology for sectors such as 5G communications and autonomous vehicles.
I have over ten years experience in the photonics sector working across academia and industry to support R&D. I am passionate about the innovation landscape in Wales, not just through photonics, but including advanced manufacturing and AI.
