Manufacturers can apply for a new £4 million funding pot to solve their analysis and measurement problems with help from experts and cutting-edge facilities.
The competition, launched by Innovate UK’s ‘Analysis for Innovators’ programme, aims to bring together businesses and the UK’s leading scientists and facilities to look at analysis and measurement problems that are affecting products, processes or services.
For example, this could include analysing why a certain percentage defect rate is occurring within an existing production process.
The programme is led by five partners: Innovate UK, the National Physical Laboratory, the National Measurement Laboratory, the National Engineering Laboratory, and the Science and Technology Facilities Council.
Both strands of the competition opened on 29 July and the deadline for expressions of interest is 4 September. Successful applicants will be invited to work with relevant partners on joint projects.
