Support for SMEs

Welding and joining are key enabling technologies in all sectors of industry involved in products made with engineering materials - from heavy structures and power plant, to microelectronics and medical devices.

TWI meets the individual needs of companies or industry sectors within specific geographic regions by providing publicly-funded technology transfer programmes geared to prevailing socio-economic conditions.

These programmes are primarily for small and medium-sized manufacturing companies (SMEs), with their objective being to boost competitiveness and stimulate growth through more effective use of technology, innovation and knowhow. TWI Technology Centre (North East)TWI Technology Centre (Wales) and TWI Technology Centre (Yorkshire) all play a major role in the organisation and provision of this activity. Technology transfer programmes have proven highly effective in creating and safeguarding jobs and turnover in the beneficiary companies.
