Growth of the National Composites Centre
In the intervening 10+ years, the National Composites Centre has become a true Strategic National Asset that holds the IP of the nation, having grown both its team and the size of its facility. The NCC is currently home to over 450 composites experts with an additional 200 at the University of Bristol. Over £300m has been invested in state-of-the-art capabilities and knowledge that allows the NCC to convene innovators, provide expertise to deliver R&D; and to pull technology through from fundamental research to industrial application.
Our portfolio has grown extensively: we’re working with companies of all sizes from micro-organisations and start-ups to some of the world’s largest and most respected innovators. The NCC operates in sectors as diverse as transport, defence, space, construction, infrastructure, leisure, energy and medical.
