TWI launches new Innovation Centre with London South Bank University

London South Bank University

We are pleased to announce the establishment of the third Innovation Centre with the London South Bank University. This new centre will focus on polymer technology with a view to grow a portfolio of activities including innovation projects and PhD studies covering polymer materials, testing and inspection methodologies. The centre will also develop new applications for an integrated systems approach for several industry sector interests and usage.

Polymeric materials are increasingly sought-after for lightweighting reasons, their versatility in terms of manufacturing complex geometries through 3D printing and their capacity to operate in aggressive environments. It is important that appropriate inspection techniques are developed for operational environments to enable the use and adoption of polymeric materials in various applications - from transport to energy and the petrochemical industry sectors. We anticipate to announce the appointments at this new Centre into 2018. The TWI Innovation Network look forward to continuing our work together with London South Bank University.
