New £2.9m development centre will improve measurement and quality control for manufacturers

We are delighted to announce that Loughborough University is one of three Midlands universities that have been awarded £2.9 million to create a new development centre, which is aimed at helping manufacturers to use and understand their data more efficiently.

Loughborough University, the University of Nottingham and Coventry University were awarded the Research England Development fund to start the Midlands Centre for Data-Driven Metrology (MCDDM).

Dr Peter Kinnell, Dr Niels Lohse and Dr Jon Petzing will be working with other academics to develop technology and practices which will improve data-driven metrology – the study of measurement and quality control – for industries including aerospace, automotive, medical instrumentation, precision optics and construction, who rely on large amounts of data to produce goods and services.

Find out more about the project aims and the MCDDM.
