NCC Collaboration Call to UK Universities: October 2018

The National Composite Centre (NCC) ‘Technology Pull-Through Programme’ aims to collaborate with UK Universities to identify technologies at TRL3 with potential for industrial application. UK Universities that submit an application could be awarded funding from NCC & HVM Catapult to support projects developed at NCC in April 2019. This project has been launched in collaboration with the EPSRC Future Composite Manufacturing Research Hub (FCMRH).

The call for applications closes on Sunday 21st October.

The process is articulated in two stages:

Stage 1 is based on the provision of high-level, short proposals submitted by the APIs which are then reviewed by two bodies: the Knowledge Exchange Committee (KEC, formed by the members identified by the FCMRH management) and the NCC TPT Committee (formed by NCC staff identified by the NCC Technology Board). The outcome of Stage 1 is a down-selected list of proposals approved to submit to the next stage.

Stage 2 requires the approved applicants to submit a fully detailed proposal, compiled with the support of an NCC Champion and NCC Technology Project Manager, identified by the NCC TPT Committee. The Stage 2 proposals are reviewed by the NCC TPT Committee and the output is a final list of funded projects.
