Creating the Next Generation of Measurement Technology

Welcome to the EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Advanced Metrology. The EPSRC Centre is based at the University of Huddersfield’s Centre for Precision Technologies, a long-established group with an international reputation in precision engineering, and metrology research and development.

Our aim is to develop the UK’s manufacturing metrology capabilities and support economic growth in precision engineering.

We are working closely with industrial and academic partners to ensure that our research and projects will benefit the sector and ultimately lead to more efficient and accurate manufacturing processes.

EPSRC Centres are a new approach by Government and UK Research Councils to maximise the impact of innovative research for the UK, to support existing industries, and to open up new industries and markets in growth areas. There are 16 EPSRC Centres in Innovative Manufacturing and each Centre acts as a national centre for research in its specific area and works closely with industry partners to find solutions for their long-term manufacturing challenges.

EPSRC (Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council) is the main UK government agency for funding research and training in engineering and the physical sciences.
