3 Synergy Promotion Projects Announced by EPSRC Future Composites Manufacturing Research Hub

Published: 30th June 2022

The EPSRC Future Composites Manufacturing Hub (The Hub) has announced the funding of three new Synergy Promotion projects, following the call for proposals issued in February 2022.

The call was open to all UK academics eligible to receive EPSRC funding. Proposals were required to have a minimum of two university partners and  envisaged to have a maximum duration of 12 months. The maximum grant expected to be in the order of £100,000 at full Economic Cost (fEC) per academic partner, with funding awarded at 80% fEC.

Titles of the successful Synergy promotion projects  chosen for funding are:

  • ‘Thermoplastic In Situ Polymerisation (TPIP) and Double Diaphragm Forming (DDF) for Moulding of Complex Parts at Scale’

Edward McCarthy, University of Edinburgh

  • ‘Energy Efficient Composite Tooling with Integrated Self-Regulating Heating and Curing Capabilities based on Recycled Composite Waste (ECOTOOL)’

Han Zhang, Queen Mary University of London

  • ‘A Numerical Tool to Aid Design-for-Manufacture of Injection Over-Moulded Composite Parts’

Jonathan Belnoue, University of Bristol

 

The Hub look forward to welcoming new academic partner; Queen Mary University of London and look to seeing the developments on all of the projects.

More information about all new projects will be founded here https://cimcomp.ac.uk/research/ as they progress.
