NPL Technology Innovation Fund launched
NPL has just launched a new Technology Innovation Fund which provides a rare opportunity to work with NPL for a fraction of the normal cost. You can draw on NPL's unique combination of industry knowledge and world-leading scientific expertise to help your business.

The NPL Technology Innovation Fund offers UK businesses three levels of support to service a range of measurement issues.

Advice surgeries
Advice surgeries give you face-to-face time with NPL scientists, or relevant member of staff to discuss particular measurement issues. Surgeries are often held alongside other events you might be attending. The next Advice Surgery will be taking place at the Aero Engineering show, held at the Birmingham NEC on the 29th - 30th September 2010. 

Through consultancies, NPL will provide technical help on specific issues for up to 10 days. NPL also give a level of matched funding in relation to the company's contribution, extending the consultancy term - enabling greater amounts of work to be undertaken.

Research Clubs
Research Clubs join up companies with similar problems. Companies pay a joining fee, which contributes to research time in areas dictated by the club members. Research clubs are anticipated in the following sectors - Advanced Manufacturing, Energy, Sustainability, Healthcare, Defence & Security, and Digital Economy.
