  1. 1. Additive Manufacturing / 3D Printing Enabled by Design-athon Friday 2nd November 2012 Ravensbourne College Robin Wilson Lead Technologist High Value Manufacturing 1
  2. 2. Our 5 Strategic Focus Areas• Accelerating the journey - concept to commercialisation• Connecting the innovation landscape• Turning Government action into business opportunity• Investing in theme areas based on global potential• Continuously improving organisational capability 2
  3. 3. Investing in priority areas based on potential 3
  4. 4. UK Manufacturing in Context• Global market worth £6.3 trillion• UK in top 10 world manufacturers• GVA of £130 bn (10% UK GVA)• World #2 Aerospace [Manufacturing GVA by Country United Nations Statistics Division,• 2 of top 6 Pharma’ companies UK Value Added by Country, US$bn, 2010] based• Half of UK Exports• Resurgent auto industry – 84% exported 4
  5. 5. High Value ManufacturingHigh value manufacturing is the application of leading-edge technicalknowledge and expertise to the creation of products, production processes,and associated services which have strong potential to bring sustainablegrowth and high economic value to the UK. Activities may stretch from R&Dat one end to recycling at the other.Such potential is characterised by a combination of high R&D intensity and high growth 5

  12. 12. Collaborative Research & Development (CR&D)A tool to support technically challenging innovation projects:• Funding is won on a competitive basis, for projects that start and finish• Thematic competitions for projects which normally last 2 or 3 years• Open to all UK companies, or UK division of multi-nationals• R&D done in UK, benefits must accrue in the UK (and beyond)• Must be collaborative, ie: 2 or more partners signed up for the project• Matched funding: 50/50 for large companies, 60% grant for SMEs• Allows some sub-contracting to enable smaller companies to participate• Application process, usually 2-stage, needs planning and preparation• Independent, external assessors evaluate and score each application• Funding is grant, not loan, so projects are monitored for the duration
