Advanced wafer manufacturer IQE was honoured at an exclusive event on Wednesday 30th November at London Stock Exchange, for The European Business Awards sponsored by RSM.

IQE was one of 55 European firms chosen by a panel of independent judges, including senior businesses and academic leaders, to be 'National Champions' in Europe's largest business competition.

IQE was recognised for its close work with the Welsh Government and Cardiff University to achieve a number of key milestones in developing an advanced, high-tech manufacturing capability with the vision of establishing the world's first Compound Semiconductor Cluster in Wales.

IQE will now represent the UK in the next stage and put forward a video giving a powerful insight into the story of its business and success. Competing against all other country National Champions for the public vote, the company with the most votes will be named 'National Public Champion' for The UK at the Gala Final in spring 2017. The first phase of the online voting is now open.

The second public vote will see all of the National Public Champions from different countries compete against each other to become the overall European Public Champion.
