The Context

The Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Medical Devices is part of a wider initiative funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) aimed at maximising the impact of innovative research for the UK.

Each Centre has been set up to respond to a specific business need and will support existing industries as well as, importantly, opening up new industries and markets in growth areas. Every Centre has been awarded five years funding to retain staff, develop collaborations and support major research projects. The funded support from the EPSRC will be used as a platform from which the Centres can secure further investment from industry and other funders.

As well as working extensively with academic, clinical and industry partners, the Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Medical Devices will maintain a close contact with other Centres for Innovative Manufacturing. These relationships, and those we have already formed with initiatives aimed at research exploitation,  will provide further opportunities for our research.
