University of Strathclyde (STRAT)
The University of Strathclyde was established in 1796 as 'the place of useful learning' and this remains its mission today: to combine academic excellence with social and economic relevance. Industrial relevance is a defining characteristic of the University. Its research activity across all faculties, but particularly in its areas of strategic importance – engineering, science and business - has made the university a UK leader in working with business and industry (voted as "UK University of the Year" in 2012, and "UK Entrepreneurial University of the Year" in 2013 respectively).
The Centre for Precision Manufacturing (CPM) of the University of Strathclyde is an internationally leading research centre in advanced manufacturing. It researches and develops materials, processes, tools, machinery and numerical modelling techniques for improving economic and technical performance of materials and manufacturing processes with advanced precision, micro- and nano-manufacturing techniques. CPM has vast experience in leading and executing EU funded projects and national funded projects, such as EU FP6 MASMICRO, POLYTUBES and Micro-FAST project. Over the last 20 years, CPM-led research has generated significant impacts on ERA and EU industry.
CPM’s roles in the MMTech project include: development of numerical models at individual length-scales, coupling algorithms and procedures for multiscale modelling and integrated software tool; support to the processes, tools and machines development/tuning; support to the system optimisation and full integration; and participating in the exploitation and dissemination.
