PEMD Scale-up: Strand 2, manufacturing process development
Drivers such as climate change, supply chain resilience and the cost of energy mean that there is a growing need to invest in manufacturing efficiency, particularly across the Power Electronics Machines and Drives (PEMD) value chain.
Innovate UK’s Driving the Electric Revolution, part of UK Research and Innovation, aims to make the UK PEMD supply chain more globally competitive by investing up to £5 million in projects that enable the scale-up of PEMD manufacturing.
In this strand Innovate UK are looking to fund collaborative projects that address key research and development opportunities through innovative solutions that impact manufacturing cost, capability and efficiency to grow resilient manufacturing supply chains for UK PEMD.
Elements of the manufacturing supply chain that are considered in scope include:
This list is not intended to be exhaustive. Other manufacturing process innovations may be in scope.
