Working with academia

Building on the excellent research at Universities and Research establishments in the UK and beyond, is fundamental to our objective to remain ahead of the curve of technology advancements and innovation. We work with academic partners on the development and delivery of a wide range of collaborative R&D projects.

Several of our centres were founded by Universities, some of which went on to host the centre.

EPSRC High Value Manufacturing Catapult Fellowship Centre

Improving the link between novel ideas (an area the UK has traditionally been strong in) and commercial value (an area other countries have been stronger in) is key.

This is why The Engineering and Physical Research Council (EPSRC) and the High Value Manufacturing Catapult jointly established the EPSRC High Value Manufacturing Catapult Fellowship Centre, to help implant new scientific ideas into the rich manufacturing base. The Centre is coordinated through the University of Sheffield and receives its funding from Innovate UK.

Dick Elsy, CEO of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult and Member of the Fellowship selection panel said: “Advanced manufacturing in the UK is doing well and has scope to continue to add more value and generate more jobs for the UK economy. By working with EPSRC, we are bringing the best of the UK’s academics in a direct and long-term working relationship with industry. This is the most effective way of maximising and accelerating the commercial impact of the world-class academic and industrial research taking place in this country.”
