About NCC Technology Days

The National Composites Centre is hosting a series of Technology Days as part of the Composites Technology Forum for UK Defence, with each event focusing on a priority technology theme selected following consultations with industry and the Ministry of Defence.

These Technology Days provide a collaborative discussion space between academic communities, the UK industrial supply chain and the Forum Steering Board, creating the opportunity for participants to present novel materials and manufacturing technologies related to different themes.

There will also be information on any current or planned research relevant to the theme and details of how to participate in future NCC-directed research projects or initiatives.
