The National Composites Centre was created as the UK’s Centre of Excellence for Composites Research and Development following the inclusion of this disruptive technology into government industrial strategy. Our task: to be recognised as a world leader in composite technology, accelerating the development and uptake of digital technologies for sustainable composites and growing the market for composites by driving innovation through collaboration and partnerships.
The National Composites Centre’s vision is to bring together the best people and the best technologies to solve some of the world’s most complex engineering challenges. We do this by digitally optimising composites design and manufacturing to create sustainable products; by building UK supply chains to deliver productivity and growth for the UK; and by developing the workforce of today and tomorrow to allow the UK to hold a global position in composites R&D.
What we do:
• Composites Innovation. We unlock innovation in the use of advanced composites. Supporting industry to find new ways to design and make higher performing products with less waste, that last longer
• Engineering Excellence. We collaborate as part of your team, providing experienced, specialist engineers to rapidly boost your composites and digital engineering capabilities and solve your challenges
• Ground-Breaking Technology. We pioneer the development of new composites design and technology capabilities in the UK to boost supply chain growth. Offering a unique, open-access industrial test-bed
