Advancing research and development in the engineering industry

The TWI Innovation Network nurtures and co-ordinates partnerships for acceleration of research and development for industry


The network is driven by the Structural Integrity Research Foundation with its engagement with large enterprises including Lloyd’s Register Foundation and BP, leading universities and academic institutions, and industry via TWI.

Partnership programmes allow amalgamation of expertise, application knowhow and market knowledge to enable engineering advances in specialist areas across a range of industry sectors, and in direct response to commercial needs.

Network partners benefit from an open access to facilities arrangement, which means that work may be carried out at TWI headquarters in Cambridge in dedicated laboratories using state-of-the-art equipment.
