Chairman’s Statement


Kevin Crofton

When I took up my role as Chairman of the Compound Semiconductor Applications Catapult last year, it was clear that we had a fantastic opportunity ahead of us.

Compound semiconductors – much faster and more efficient than their predecessors – will be at the heart of future devices, generating considerable benefits not only for the UK electronics sector but also for the UK industries that apply them.

The UK is uniquely placed to benefit from this opportunity. It has some of the best research in the world and innovative companies active in compound semiconductors.

As we embark on our journey, there’s excitement and great anticipation. I am thankful to all the stakeholders who have supported us as we have developed our strategy and implementation plans. Please, come and work with us to build a new industry.
