New university partnership set to revolutionise engineering Industry


A major £2 million research programme has been launched to examine changes required by the engineering industry as it moves to provide more product-related services, rather than just the products themselves.  Headed by Cambridge University's Institute for Manufacturing (IfM), the new research programme, 'Support Service Solutions: Strategy and Transition', is jointly funded by BAE Systems and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and involves researchers from Bath, Cranfield, Exeter, Leeds, Loughborough, Nottingham, Queens and Salford universities.
