Government investment aims to stimulate innovation in manufacturing
Sixteen major new R&D projects that will help stimulate innovation in the UK's manufacturing sector are to share government funding of more than £6.5million.
The grant funding, provided by the Technology Strategy Board and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, will support the development of new technologies that underpin new production processes in a range of industrial applications and market sectors.
The focus of the R&D will be on production technologies that can create high value through novel processes, advanced product manufacture, and/or resource efficiency improvements. The projects will also encourage the development of technologies that will facilitate greater environmental sustainability through efficient disposal, recycling or remanufacture of assets at the end of their useful life.
Companies leading the projects include Airbus, GKN Aerospace, Renishaw and the Manufacturing Technology Centre.
