Successful completion of IMCRC research programme
The research programme of Loughborough University's IMCRC, which ran from 1 October 2001 to 30 September 2011, has been successfully completed with over 200 research projects undertaken in collaboration with more than 400 organisations.
Details of the IMCRC research and the 2012 Knowledge Exchange Project are available via these web pages and directly from the academic staff who have contributed to the Centre's activities.
Launched in 2001, the purpose of the EPSRC-funded Innovative Manufacturing Research Centres (IMRCs) was to provide a focal point for research excellence, collaborate actively with UK businesses and facilitate knowledge transfer and exploitation of research results; making a vital collective contribution to the future of the UK economy and society.
We would like to thank all contributors to the IMCRC’s success. The new EPSRC Centres for Innovative Manufacturing and Loughborough’s involvement in the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) are a great legacy of the IMCRC, which will enable Loughborough academics to build on their IMCRC successes.
We look forward to your continued contact with Loughborough University to explore new research initiatives.
