Released by the dti on Friday 11th July 2003


A Nottingham company is amongst the 36 research projects sharing 5.4million, the largest DTI payout in recent years to EUREKA projects.

TQC Ltd based in Hooton Street was awarded 856,000 over three years for its project to help engineers design automatic assembly systems using an interactive website.

Working with the School of Mechanical Materials Manufacturing Engineering and Management at the University of Nottingham they aim to create a forum for suppliers and customers to interact at the early product and assembly cell design stages.

36 UK companies involved in 17 research projects are to benefit from funding through their involvement in EUREKA, the Europe-wide, government-funded initiative, Science Minister Lord Sainsbury announced today.

Aiming to increase European competitiveness in new technology, EUREKA promotes collaboration between companies, universities and research institutions across Europe.

31 new projects, involving 51 UK companies, are part of this European programme and have won the EUREKA seal of approval, and of these, 17 projects are sharing the multi-million pound DTI grant.

Announcing the projects, Lord Sainsbury said;

“Innovation and investment in R&D are vital for the creation of jobs and long-term prosperity.It is crucial for UK business that new ideas make it beyond the drawing-board stage, and are explored in research projects and developed into successful products.

“The EUREKA programme is a great opportunity for UK companies to form strategic partnerships with European counterparts, and I am pleased that so many UK companies are involved, and have received a share in this substantial funding”

“These innovative projects ensure that the UK manufacturing industry continues to take the lead in the generation of new ideas for high quality, value added products and processes for global markets.”
