The Composites Innovation Cluster (CiC) is the largest single collaborative R&D programme in the composites industry.
After five years of work with a total spend of £22m, revolutionising the lightweighting of composites, this event will bring together government and industry to share the positive impact the Cluster has had on the composites supply chain as the programme comes to a successful close.
Who should attend?
You will see and hear about the composites capability demonstrated by the programme, from complete propeller blades to full vehicle chassis, from thermoplastics to graphene-enhanced composites.
The 31 partners who worked on 17 projects between them produced a range of demonstrators across the gamut of the composite value chain, including CAE, FEA, design for manufacture, automation, overmoulding, HP-RTM and liquid resin infusion.
This event is an excellent opportunity to find out more on the Cluster’s outcomes and form collaborations with those project partners going forward.

When & Where
Composites Innovation Cluster
The Cluster is funded by the Department for Business Innovation and Skills’ Advanced Manufacturing Supply Chain Initiative (AMSCI).
31 companies form part of 17 projects, which brings together academics, industry suppliers, and primes to support the delivery of a nationally connected network of materials specialists, manufacturing and process businesses, tooling and systems providers.
