South West High Potential Opportunities

Photonics and Microelectronics (Heart of the South West)

The Heart of the South West offers companies an opportunity to integrate the critical light and electronics based solutions. They are demanded by the global connected and autonomous vehicle industry across land, sea and air. Within the agri-tech sector, high power horticultural LED lighting can be used to increase growth yields.  The Epic Centre in Torbay along with the University of Exeter are working with international companies to further this opportunity.

Sustainable Aquaculture (Dorset)

Dorset has been awarded a High Potential Opportunity in Aquaculture by the Department for International Trade.  It supports the opportunity to enter the UK aquaculture market to meet growing national and global demand for fish, shellfish and aquatic plants by developing and deploying technologies.
