The NCC (National Composites Centre) will launch a new programme SME Boost – where it will match fund up to £25,000 to assist UK SMEs to develop composites products – at the Advanced Engineering Show in Birmingham this week.

The process for getting involved is straightforward: interested companies submit an idea and a business case to the NCC, which will be assessed by a panel of composites experts. Projects meeting the criteria will then be invited to work with the NCC’s Connect team to deliver the project.

The show attendees can visit the NCC stand at the show to talk to the NCC’s team and find out more about how your business can benefit from the range of services and products aimed at SMEs.

“We’re really excited to be able to provide SMEs with this new route to collaborate with the NCC. In essence working with us doubles your investment and we also help back you up with skills, capabilities and networking opportunities. Our aim is to help make innovative composites R&D as straightforward as possible for the UK’s smaller companies,” said Katy Riddington, Business Unit Director for NCC Connect, which specialises in SME support.

The NCC is a leading authority on composites that brings together and develops the best minds and the best technologies to help solve the world’s most complex engineering challenges be that heat shields for space, the future of air travel, new approaches to energy or disruptive technologies that enable new products to be created.
