About the Core Research Programme
Projects within the CRP concentrate on the predominant challenges Industrial Members are currently experiencing, in particular technology areas and/or industry sectors that are critical to future operations.
Tat-Hean Gan, Director of Innovation and Skills, TWI explains “The Core Research Programme is unique in that is has been designed to assist TWI Industrial Member companies with developing new, technology-based products and services that are responsive to their own operational circumstances in the context of the changing demands of industry and global markets.” Adding “The CRP’s collaborative approach utilises innovative thinking to enable new products, processes and systems to come to fruition that can benefit Industrial Members as well as wider industry, and lead to long terms benefits such are lower costs, and improved safety and reliability.”
