The academic team has a strong track record of collaboration with industrial partners, many of whom were consulted during the development of the Hub. This network is essential for delivering the pipeline of next generation technologies. The 2016 UK Composites Strategy has highlighted the requirements for push/pull technologies in order to 'deliver, develop and diversify', which will provide the means to respond to the forecast 160% and potential 700% growth of the industry over the next five and fifteen years respectively. Key to this strategy is the creation of the Composites Hub in order to push technologies through to the HVM Catapult Centres (NCC, AMRC, WMG and MTC) so that they can be developed through the Technology Readiness Levels (TRLs) and exploited by UK industry.
Key partners involved in creating and supporting this network are as follows:
