EPSRC Future Composites Manufacturing Research Hub will be present at International Summit on Composites (ICS) in London on 21-22 September 2022 and will be located in Under 30.
The hub aims to support the growth potential of composite industry. With a valuable platform in ICS, ddevelopment outcomes can be promoted by basic research conducted in automated copposite production technologies in 15 the United Kingdom university partners. The research challenges are aimed at needs of our diverse industry partner network covering sectors such as automotive, aerospace and energy storage.
The hub will showcase research results from five priority areas:
- Technologies for high-speed deposition and rapid processing.
- Design for manufacturing through validated simulation.
- Production of multifunctional composites and integrated structures.
- In-process inspection and evaluation.
- Recycling and reuse.
Dr Lee Harper, Center Manager said: “The International Composites Summit is an exciting opportunity to showcase all the innovative work in composites being done across our research network. We look forward to meeting members of the community in person and discussing how we can further leverage composite materials to provide lightweight solutions for structural applications.
ICS hosts discussion on global supply chains and growth in the composites sector. To register for this free-to-attend exhibition, please visit the International Composites Summit website: www.internationalcompositessummit.com
The Future Composites Manufacturing Research Hub is a £10.3m investment from the EPSRC for engages academics from across the UK to deliver a step change in polymer manufacturing matrix composites.
The center is run by the University of Nottingham and the University of Bristol and includes 13 other speakers: Brunel University London, Cranfield University, Imperial College London, Ulster University, University of Bath, University of Cambridge, University of Edinburgh, University of Glasgow, University of Manchester, University of Sheffield, University of Southampton, University of Warwick and Wrexham Glyndore University.
The center is supported by 4 high-value manufacturing launch centers and supported by 18 leads companies in the composites sector, offering a further £12.7m of additional support.
