Lord Sainsbury praises the work of the UK's Innovative Manufacturing Research Centres

  • Stronger, lightweight car body structures
  • New ways of developing pharmaceutical drugs
  • Improved car safety and design for pregnant women

These are just some of the achievements in Innovative Manufacturing in the UK being highlighted at an event in Manchester today (14th Sept).

The Government's recent Spending Review and the launch of the Science and Innovation Investment Framework both emphasised the importance of raising industrial investment and involvement in research. This event aims to show how the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council is doing this through its Innovative Manufacturing Research Centres.

Speaking at the event, Lord Sainsbury, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Science and Innovation, will outline the significance of investment in this area.

"It is vital that the innovation, and the benefits from leading-edge scientific and technological research feed directly into exciting new products and manufacturing processes," said Lord Sainsbury. "Through excellent collaboration between industry and Higher Education Institutions, the regional network of Innovative Manufacturing Research Centres are at the forefront of driving forward innovations in manufacturing and improving competitiveness. There are two important sides to knowledge transfer 'science base push' as well as 'business pull'. Although innovation depends largely on the knowledge, risk-taking, and creative energy of business, the Government remains committed to encouraging scientists and engineers to turn their research into new products and services and to engage more fully with business."

In 2001 the first series of Innovative Manufacturing Research Centres were established by EPSRC with the support of collaborating companies and other funding agencies.

Seventeen IMRCs are now in operation and are making advances in areas ranging from laser processing and digital tools for manufacturing to sports
