The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) Future Composites Manufacturing Research Hub (the Hub) has released its second call for feasibility studies. The closing date is 10 December 2018.
Grants will be announced for up to two feasibility studies to conduct research at TRL 1 to 3 in two distinct areas:
Feasibility studies are short-term projects (up to six months) intended to investigate ambitious and challenging ideas seeking to create a step-change in composite manufacturing. They are the primary mechanism for new partners to engage with the Hub and may lead to longer-term Core Projects if feasibility is demonstrated. Alternatively, support is available through the Hub’s Strategic Development Committee to secure further external funding to develop the technology readiness.
This announcement follows on from a call for Feasibility Studies in May 2017, where six new projects were funded, introducing three new Spoke members to the Hub; the University of Cambridge, the University of Edinburgh and the University of Glasgow:
