Industrial Member reports summaries - key findings for industry

Industrial Member reports convey the findings of projects completed as part of TWI's Core Research Programme. More information and a list of projects currently being undertaken can be found via the Core Research Programme page.

Each Industrial Member report is accompanied by a report summary - key findings for industry - and these are publicly available. Website users from Industrial Member companies, once logged in, can access a link to the full report within each summary.
