Industrial partners include Rolls-Royce, Siemens, GKN, Dyson, Protean Electric and Hoganas.
“The Hub will address key manufacturing challenges in the production of high integrity and high value electrical machines for the aerospace, energy, automotive and premium consumer sectors,” according to EPSRC.
This was announced alongside two other hubs, which also got £10m each:
Sustain Manufacturing Hub, will champion innovation in steel and is lead by Swansea University and partnered Tata, Liberty, British Steel, Celsa, and Sheffield Forgemasters – along with Warwick and Sheffield universities.
Future Biomanufacturing Research Hub, led by The University of Manchester with partners: Imperial College, UCL, University of Nottingham, UK Catalysis Hub, IBioIC and the Centre for Process Innovation (CPI). It wil focus on pharmaceuticals, “value-added chemicals”, accoding to EPSRC, and engineering materials.
This takes the total number of Government manufacturing hubs to 13 across the UK.
“There’s a real need to mesh fundamental research with our manufacturing industries,” said , EPSRC executive chair Professor Lynn Gladden. “By doing so we can ensure that research is relevant to industrial need but also that UK businesses can be in touch with the latest developments in their fields.”
EPSRC is part of UK Research and Innovation, a non-departmental public body funded by a grant-in-aid from the UK government.
