The Advanced Manufacturing Supply Chain Initiative has been set up by UK Government to help existing UK supply chains grow and achieve world class standards while encouraging major new suppliers to come and manufacture in England. The Composites Innovation Cluster (CiC) has been awarded over £11M from this initiative. Royal Holloway University of London is partner in the Composites Innovation Cluster (CiC). The Composites Innovation Cluster (CiC) will deliver 13 integrated capability projects across 25 partners from Q1’13 and will aim to deliver a holistic supply chain model which will extend throughout the composites community.
The CompFore project based at the School of Management, Royal Holloway University of London will create a sustainable modelling tool of the composites supply chain that will allow companies to make realistic engineering decisions on technology insertion to strengthen the UK supply chain, based on real-world economic data as well as the technical merits of that technology.
Professor Paul Hogg is Principal Investigator
