The translation of our research to manufacturing and product development is led by our industrial partner – TWI Ltd. They provide technical expertise across a wide range of topics and bring experience of running industrially facing networks. We run a series of interfacing events at which our members are introduced to the technical development strategies of the major Welsh anchor companies and, in turn they present their research expertise. Focused follow up meetings then support the development of project funding bids to organisations such as InnovateUK. Our Network members are also provided with individual support to help find company partners or to develop their research to higher TRL levels.
