Why research?

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.

About MIGs

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.
