Programme Actions

The techUK Electronics Programme is made up of companies in the UK that manufacture electronic systems or subsystems, modules or components, are involved in the supply chain for electronic systems designed in the UK, or are manufacturers of products, which use or incorporate Electronics.

The aim of the group is to identify and drive the market forward by facilitating networking and discussions that can result in the uptake of innovative products, solutions and services and by organising high-quality technical and business seminars.

Within the Electronics Programme, there are several focus groups representing the supply side industries vital to the other techUK themes and to the digital future of the UK. These focus groups comprise mainly SME companies who benefit from making connections and attending technical and business briefing seminars.

The Electronics work programme will ensure:

  • that the groups address the technical and business needs of the UK Electronics Manufacturing Industry and the vertical sectors that they represent
  • that members benefit from the technical and business knowledge available through other techUK programmes
  • that business and regulatory issues that may adversely affect the industry are highlighted are addressed in consultation with regulators and Government.

These aims and objectives will be achieved by delivering the following outputs:


Thought Leadership/Market Insights 

  • Dissemination of new developments in Electronics by invited companies to ‘show case’ their technology at focus seminars including contributions from focus group members.
  • Develop reports and white papers, together with members, addressing specific industry issues
  • Co-ordinating  member activities in:

-       Wearables and Miniaturised Electronics used in Defence, HealthCare and Satellites sectors

-       Advanced Comms systems (high data rate, low latency), coordinated by the Wireless Comms SIG for the Defence, Smart UK and Transportation sectors
