Innovation Fast Forward Festival

I was very proud to launch the Cardiff Innovation System at the University’s Innovation Fast Forward Festival in the Hadyn Ellis Building today. At the festival we outlined our plans to become an internationally recognised engine for future prosperity, health and growth in Wales, the UK and the wider world. We have an ambitious vision for innovation-led growth that will boost the Welsh economy and will be investing around £300m in new buildings to bring this vision to life.  The plans include four new buildings which will transform a site on Maindy Road from a disused, former industrial space into a cutting-edge campus. One of the new builds will be the world’s first Social Science Research Park, which will turn world-leading research into solutions to pressing problems facing society and the world.  For further information see the news pages.
