Industrial Development, Testing and Consultancy
ACMC undertakes a wide variety of R&D work using a number of funding sources. Some long-term projects are funded by research councils, UK government or Europeam Community sources (e.g. the framework Programmes), while other work is carried out for individual industry clients on a short or medium-term basis. We can provide appropriate Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDA) or work to those provided by the company.
Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) are one of our preferred schemes and have been a significant part of our work for many years: these schemes provide financial support for in-company development projects. For more information on KTP, click here.
