Sandpit: New Industrial Systems

In response to future manufacturing challenges EPSRC is running a sandpit with a focus on New Industrial Systems to engender a radical change in the research undertaken in this field in the UK. We hope that this sandpit will enable UK researchers to identify and undertake research with the potential to have a transformative impact on our manufacturing industries.

It is expected that up to £5 million of EPSRC funding will be made available to fund research projects arising from this sandpit.
