ASTUTE 2020 (Advanced Sustainable Manufacturing Technologies) will support industrial Research, Development and Innovation (RD&I) through world-class academics and a team of highly qualified technical experts and project managers. ASTUTE 2020 will focus only on those areas of industrial demand where we can specifically bring to bear the established world-leading and internationally excellent expertise found across the Welsh Universities’ partnership to address the industrial RD&I needs:
â€¢ Computational Engineering Modelling
â€¢ Advanced Materials Technology
â€¢ Manufacturing Systems Engineering
ASTUTE 2020 â€“ Industry projects will:
â€¢ be demand-led by industry
â€¢ require a Research Challenge in our three key areas Computational Engineering Modelling, Advanced Materials Technology or
Manufacturing Systems Engineering
â€¢ involve Collaboration, so that the companies and the Universities share the inputs, outputs and risks
â€¢ bring economic benefit to West Wales and the Valleys
The operation has been part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government.
