Technology Pull-Through programme

The NCC's Technology Pull-Through Programme (TPT) is designed to promote research that will enable the transition of suitably mature technologies from academia to industry, in collaboration with the EPSRC Future Composite Manufacturing Research Hub (FCMRH). It aims to de-risk, scale up and facilitate the industrialisation of proven technologies by transferring them from the lab environment into the NCC’s semi-industrial set-up for further testing.

In addition to sponsoring the projects, the NCC work collaboratively with the project teams, using its project management, research and development expertise to help further the technology.
