CPI Hosts TSB Electronic Manufacturing Systems Event
On the 28th January, CPI in conjunction with the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) and the ESP KTN hosted a networking event regarding the upcoming Technology Strategy Board call on innovation and growth in manufacturing electronic systems. The event was well attended with attendees from a range of companies including PCB manufacturers, motor sport designers and radio frequency electronics manufacturers.
The Technology Strategy Board is to invest up to £4.75m in collaborative R&D and feasibility studies to stimulate innovation and growth in the manufacture of electronic systems. They are looking to fund projects that explore novel manufacturing processes that could lead to new ways of making products in the future.
The competition will be launched under 2 strands:
- Collaborative R&D projects: projects up to £500k and 12 – 14 months duration
- Feasibility Studies: projects up to £75k and 6 – 9 months duration
The competition opens for both types of project on 17th February 2014 and the deadline for registration is noon on 26th March. The deadline for expressions of interest for collaborative R&D projects, and for applications for feasibility projects is noon on 2nd April 2014.
