Technology Consortium Programme

CST Global is an active member and supporter of the UK and European Technology Consortium Programme. The consortium members range from start-up companies to global corporations. There are currently eight active projects, with two further projects pending approval.

CST Global has appointed PhD qualified engineers from within the company to lead each new technology development project within the Consortium Programme. Early access to emerging technologies and strong connections to UK centres of academic excellence has kept CST Global at the forefront of the III-V compound semiconductor market.
