In today´s fast–moving world, you can´t afford to stand still. Our extensive programme of industrially–relevant research and innovation helps ensure
that we retain the cutting–edge skills, facilities, knowledge and expertise to solve your problems and support your business development.
With members, for members
The core of our research programme is funded by member subscriptions; members are heavily involved in steering the projects
and early discussion of results. The emphasis is on practical outcomes and industrial relevance. The programme of research is organised into
five strategic themes. A complete list of the 60–70 projects active at any one time is published in
our annual Research Programme.
Each member funded project is allocated to one of our Member Interest Groups (MIGs), which steers the project’s
direction and receives regular updates on the results. This close engagement of members is vital in making the projects as relevant to
industry needs as possible – so that they can deliver practical solutions to current and future problems.
