lowRISC is delighted that Andy Hopper, lowRISC’s independent chair, has been knighted for services to Computer Technology.

Andy said “As you might imagine I am delighted. What I have achieved is all a result of teamwork. The University of Cambridge and the Cambridge Cluster have provided a wonderfully collaborative and flexible environment within which I have had the good fortune to work for over 40 years.”

The culture he created, and his interest in and support for doing things in non-standard ways, has helped to establish over 200 start-ups, including lowRISC CIC.

Sir Andy Hopper, CBE, FIET, FREng, FRS, is Treasurer and Vice-President of the Royal Society and Professor of Computer Technology in the Department of Computer Science and Technology at the University of Cambridge.
