Group Sponsored Projects (GSPs), also often referred to as Joint Industry Projects, have introduced many of TWI's most innovative technologies directly to industry, and provide an opportunity for Members to steer the development of cutting edge technology towards their own specific needs and with the benefit of input from others involved in their Sector.
Topics covered by our GSP programme include many key areas of technology. Emphasis is typically placed on (i) issues relating to safety and integrity, and development of codes and standards, or (ii) generic, pre-competitive process development. The work is carried out on behalf of a group of clients typically (4 - 10) who share access to the results and are able to make use of these in all aspects of their business. Projects are typically of 2 years duration. The combination of TWI's own experts and Member representatives who themselves have wide ranging experience of their Sector provides a powerful combination for solving problems.
More details of opportunities to join current and planned GSPs can be found here. There is also the possibility to access results from a wide range of GSPs which have been completed over recent years. Summaries of these projects can also be found from the link above. Alternatively, if you have any questions or would like assistance in identifying GSPs appropriate to your company's needs please contact us.
