Get Fully-Funded Support from TWI with MITT

Tue, 11 April, 2023

Time is running out for businesses in the Tees Valley region to access fully-funded support from TWI as part of the Materials Integrity Technology Transfer (MITT) programme.

Through the programme, companies in Darlington, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland, and Stockton-on-Tees can access up to seven days of support paid for by ERDF and TVCA.

This support is designed to help you overcome technology challenges and remove barriers to growth through practical, impartial and independent advice delivered by our network of engineers and technology experts.

Covering areas such as welding, plastics joining, surface engineering, coatings technology, additive manufacturing, non-destructive testing, inspection, metallurgy and numerical modelling, this fully-funded support can be accessed by companies who employ 250 people or less in the Tees Valley area.

We have already helped over 65 companies in the Tees Valley region, creating 19 jobs and safeguarding 339 others. This has led to 8 new products to the market and 14 new products to the companies involved.

There is still time to take advantage of this initiative, however, the programme is due to finish at the end of June so time is running out to take advantage of this support, which is normally only available to TWI Industrial Members.

Changes in the funding landscape mean that we may not be able to offer this paid-for support in the future, so act now to see how you could benefit from this exclusive, fully-funded support by emailing

You can also find out more about the MITT programme at the project website, here.

The Materials Integrity Technology Transfer (MITT) programme is a component of the Tees Valley Centre for Materials Integrity Programme, which is part-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020) and Tees Valley Combined Authority.
