The EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Composites is offering funding for up to nine research feasibility studies in the field of Composites Manufacturing. The Centre is looking to fund TRL 1 to 3 research in the identified themes, which will aid the fundamental understanding of composites manufacturing. The feasibility studies should examine a subject area in the field, review activity in it, identify key challenges and research questions not currently being addressed and develop full proposals for funding by established routes (i.e. EPSRC, TSB, EU, Industry). Awardees are expected to attract significant new industrial support and the subsequent major award will form a strategic part of the Centre activities. Awards are limited to £50,000 at 80% FEC and up to a maximum duration of six months.
