The National Composite Centre’s (NCC) Core Programme 2023 will continue advancing key technologies and capabilities to enable industry to take advantage of advanced materials as they strive for net zero practices.
With the technical direction steered by the NCC’s Tier 1 Members, the projects continue to push the boundaries of composites use and recycling, with a focus on circularity and sustainable manufacturing processes. Energy transformation will also be on the agenda, with the further development of both cryogenic and pressure storage systems for hydrogen.
Digital manufacturing will also be explored, as will the ability of composites to withstand harsh environments.
At the culmination of this year’s programme, Tier 1 Members will access research outputs over 15 times the value of their contribution through the collaborative nature of the programme. Tier 2 and Associate Members of the NCC can also access Core’s leading-edge research, with more information available here.
To maximise impact, the Core programme remains open for industry and RTO engagement. For more information on any of this year’s Core Programme projects – and how your organisation can get involved – please contact Richard Grainger and Roger Walker.
