Composites UK and the National Composites Centre
The National Composites Centre was established to support the deliverables of the UK Composites Strategy, ensuring that UK companies and academic institutions were brought together to develop new composite materials, technologies and processes. It is part of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult HVMC.
Composites UK and the National Composites Centre (NCC) work together to:
- Ensure the delivery of complementary products and support to meet industry needs - in particular for the SME sector
- Be a virtual and physical organisation connected to and meeting the composites needs of UK industry
- Provide a connected and collaborative vehicle for wider partnership and collaboration
- Inform and service Composites sector leadership
This results in shared industry intelligence; collective newsletter, events and trade promotion; and a ‘one-stop’ composites enquiry point.
Industry benefits from this increasingly coordinated approach, which facilitates industry partnering in areas such as collaborative technology development and shared training and skills development programmes including Apprenticeships.
