Universities Join Forces to Pioneer World-leading Optical Research


Wrexham Glyndŵr University’s OpTIC Centre in St Asaph has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the University of Huddersfield.

The partnership sees the two institutions collaborate and develop each other’s capability in arenas of metrology and engineering, as well as jointly bidding for grand funding and tendering for contracts.

Huddersfield follows other universities in basing themselves at the world-leading Denbighshire facility, including Swansea and Cranfield. These leading Universities are all working alongside the 18 innovative companies currently resident in the OpTIC facility, producing leading edge technology products.

The OpTIC centre also houses Glyndŵr Innovations Ltd, offering business management support, incubation and conference facilities alongside their technical service commercial group who provide support and manufacturing including opto-mechanical engineering design, fabrication and test of large optical components and systems.
