University collaboration secures ~£0.5M towards ‘SuperREACT project’
A collaboration between Teer Coatings Ltd, Johnson Matthey Plc and the University of Birmingham, which has the potential to provide a radical new capability for high-tech UK manufacturing, has been awarded over
£480k funding from the Technology Strategy Board. This award is to support the £1m ‘SuperREACT Project’, in particular the further development of a breakthrough technology which aims to transform a research apparatus
into a true manufacturing tool in the field of cluster beam technology , opening up manufacturing opportunities in catalytic, fine chemical, electronic/ photonic, bio-medicine and anti-microbials.
Professor Richard Palmer, Head of The Nanoscale Physics Research Laboratory at the University of Birmingham said: “I am delighted by the Technology Strategy Board’s vote of confidence in our close and fruitful
partnership with Teer and Johnson Matthey. This project has the potential to provide a radical new capability for high-tech UK manufacturing".
