Mr Matthew Turner
Head of Operations - Cyber Innovation Hub
I'm currently on secondment as Head of Operations of the Cyber Innovation Hub. I've worked at Cardiff University since 2004, having previously been at the University of Reading. I've undertaken a variety of roles at Cardiff University in Registry, School of Dentistry and the School of Social Sciences before joining the School of Computer Science and Informatics in June 2014 to manage the establishment of the National Software Academy. I subsequently became Industry and External Engagement Manager for the School of Computer Science & Informatics until joining the Cyber Innovation Hub in 2022.
The Cyber Innovation Hub aims to transform the Cardiff Capital Region into a leading UK cyber cluster by 2030. We will do this by creating at least 25 new cyber companies and training at least 1500 people in cyber skills. The Cyber Innovation Hub is being led by Cardiff University with partners including Airbus, Alacrity Foundation, CGI, Thales, Tramshed Tech, and the University of South Wales. It is funded by Welsh Government and Cardiff Capital Region.
