SCIENCE TO INDUSTRY...


T


he UK is rightly renowned for its cutting-edge science, technology and engineering heritage. Still


today this natural curiosity of knowing and discovery enables the UK to be a world leader, responsible for some of the greatest innovations on and off the planet; including the web, satellites and touch screen technology.


The University of Birmingham – a great pioneering and civic university has now teamed up with the Science, Technology and Facilities Council (STFC) and the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) to bring big science to small businesses.


Science to Industry is an innovative programme on a mission to solve industry’s technical challenges. From lasers to high performing computing and from space science to advanced microelectronics and imaging, we want to lend a hand in solving real problems faced by industry week in and week out.


DON’T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT


As a global leader in aero-engine provision Rolls-Royce strives to make continuous improvements in crucial areas such as fuel efficiency, noise reduction and emissions performance.


With innovation at the forefront of the company’s reputation Rolls-Royce wanted to improve its design to assembly process and its overall product quality.


Working with scientists, technologists and engineers from STFC it was able to speed up its design to build process by using state-of-the-art high-performance computing and enhance the quality of its components by using cutting-edge imaging technology that could detail component performance from the atomic to the whole assembly level – supporting Rolls-Royce in maintaining its global position.


With access to a community of over 2,000 scientists, technologists and engineers – at the forefront of their field – along with world leading instruments - we are ready and waiting to solve product, process or research and development based technical problems. From manufacturing and engineering to life sciences and information technology, we want to engage with industry to maximise productivity, reduce costs or waste and create a positive economical and societal impact.


Science to Industry is ready and waiting to solve your technical challenges through some of the best science the UK can offer. We will work closely with you to understand the depth of your technical problem, advise on the relevant facility that can offer a solution for the desired outcome and fast forward to speaking with the appropriate technicians and scientists to identify whether there is a valid solution to the problem and what that entails. Financed by the Government’s Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund, let us make a difference to your business.
