Innovate UK is to invest up to £2 million in innovative business studies into new surface engineering and coating technologies that will help the UK to lead the way in advanced manufacturing.

The competition covers new technologies that could enhance the way components perform, such as improved anti-fouling, corrosion-protection and wear-resistance.

Project costs can range between £50,000 to £150,000 and small businesses could receive up to 70% of their costs, whilst medium-sized businesses can receive 60% and large businesses 50%.

The competition aims to stimulate innovation in:

  • The creation and evaluation of innovative and accessible real-time process control technology
  • Process informatics
  • Improved characterisation techniques
  • The measurement of critical coating and surface properties
  • Integration of existing surface engineering and coating technologies with digital manufacturing technologies

The competition opens on the 11th January and closes on 9th March 2016

Businesses must work in collaboration, and one business must be involved in advanced manufacturing.
