Challenge Programmes

Our first two challenge led programmes build UK supply chain capability for electric vehicles and 5G infrastructure.


We will open state-of-the-art facilities, including full evaluation laboratories propelling the UK compound semiconductor industry into a world-leading position.

Our strategy is to drive economic growth by helping UK companies to accelerate the use of compound semiconductors in their products.

We will achieve this by:

  • developing an innovation centre that offers capabilities and laboratory facilities required by industry to accelerate the development of new products
  • developing, offering and collaborating on evaluation modules for companies to rapidly explore new compound semiconductor technologies, enabling them to enhance their product range and target new markets
  • stimulating demand across the UK supply chain through challenge-led programmes, which will help a number of prioritised industry sectors apply compound semiconductor technologies in their roadmaps out to 2025 and beyond.
