Quadrant organised a VIP dinner at the National Museum Cardiff this month on behalf of EADS to celebrate the launch of EADS Foundation Wales.
The inaugural Morgan Botti Lecture was delivered by Professor Lord Winston, Professor of Science and Society at Imperial College London, followed by a black tie dinner in the Grand Hall.
Rt Hon Rhodri Morgan, after whom the lecture is named, was the guest of honour along with other special guests including current First Minister Rt Hon Carwyn Jones and Dr David Grant, Vice Chancellor of Cardiff University.
EADS Foundation Wales aims to invigorate the level of research and technology investment in Wales and ensure maximum collaboration between industry, government and academia.
The launch of the Foundation was an enormous step forward, showing long-term commitment to science and research by all the partners involved.
