The funding given to the Universities of Nottingham and Bristol to anchor cutting-edge composites manufacturing research in the UK is for the Future Composites Manufacturing Hub (FCM Hub). The aim is to develop the next generation of composites technologies and train the people required to deliver those innovations.
