£21 million for new Centres for Innovative Manufacturing

Four new research centres, that will develop new ways of manufacturing in the fields of electronics, laser use in production processes, medical devices and food production, have been awarded a total of 21 million Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) grant funding as part of a 45 million package of investments in manufacturing research announced today by David Willetts, Minister for Universities and Science.

Speaking ahead of the BIS Manufacturing Summit on Thursday, Mr Willetts said: "The UK has a proud history of manufacturing but to build on this success industry needs access to the very latest science and technology. This 45 million package of investment will see our world-class research base investigating innovative new manufacturing equipment and techniques. This will support our industrial strategy in a range of important sectors, driving growth and keeping the UK ahead in the global race."

The new Centres, which will begin work later in the year, will involve academics from 15 universities across the UK and over 60 project partners from industry.

EPSRC currently supports 12 centres across a wide range of fields, from Additive Manufacturing to Industrial Sustainability to Continuous Manufacturing and Crystallisation. These four new centres bring the total to 16. The centres are:

EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Large Area Electronics led by Dr Chris Rider at the University of Cambridge starting October 2013. Grant value 5.6 million

EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Food led by Dr Tim Foster at the University of Nottingham starting September 2013. Grant value 4.5 million

EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Laser-based Production Processes led by Professor Duncan Hand at Heriot-Watt University starting October 2013. Grant value 5.6 million

EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Medical Devices led by Professor John Fisher at the University of Leeds starting October 2013. Grant value 5.7 million

EPSRC's Chief Executive, Professor David Delpy said: "EPSRC Centres of Innovative Manufacturing are building on previous investments we have made in the research base and combining academic innovation with industry knowledge. These new centres are in areas that are strategically important to the UK and the work there will push research boundaries and drive growth."
