Having taken on the role of interim R&D Director at ComAp we spent the year further developing R&D, the product and project portfolio, the processes and, most importantly, the people. As well as launching several important products, we planted some seeds for the future which I’ll be able to discuss as they bear fruit in due course. I was delighted to hand R&D across to Radim Girgas at the beginning of 2016 and I moved across to look after product management. I remain on the Executive Team as Product Director.

Also on the advisory board of a small Cambridge consultancy.

Meanwhile the work helping Cambridge academics to engage more effectively with industry moved into its final year. This has continued to be fun and rewarding, working with some brilliant people and exciting technologies.
