First national EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing

Following the announcement in March this year of £45m from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) for nine national Centre’s for Innovative Manufacturing, the first of these centres was launched officially at Cranfield University last July.

The new EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Through-life Engineering Services is run as a collaborative initiative between Cranfield and Durham Universities, supported by four core industry partners - BAE Systems, Bombardier, Rolls-Royce and the Ministry of Defence - and 13 additional industry partners.
The Centre will combine innovative technology and engineering knowledge, supported by the partner organisations, to tackle some of the major long-term research challenges in through-life engineering services.
