The Future Metrology Hub’s vision is to transform the UK’s manufacturing performance by delivering significant improvements in the speed, accuracy and cost of measurement.
This will be achieved by developing novel embedded metrology technologies and a universal metrology informatics system to integrate design, production and verification.
With investment of over £40 million, the Hub is a key part of the UK Government’s research strategy to ensure that the UK becomes more competitive and productive.
The Hub is led by Professor Dame Jane Jiang and supported by world-leading research teams from Huddersfield, Sheffield, Loughborough and Bath universities and the National Physical Laboratory (NPL). It is supported by 29 companies, across a range of sectors, and UK’s High Value Manufacturing Catapult.
