The Forum is a consortium of Welsh companies, University research groups, users and support organisations, formed following the impetus of activities in North Wales, and is dedicated to the development and profitability of the opto-electronics sector in Wales and internationally. Opto-electronics is all around and part of everyones daily life, and probably those who will gain most from the Forum are the people and companies for whom the technology currently forms a small part of their work.
