Executive Summaries are produced at the start of a new Core Research Programme (CRP) project and provide an overview of the scope for the planned research and development (R&D) activity. Typically, a summary comprises objectives, project outline, industry sector relevance, anticipated benefits and timings.
Executive Summaries are freely available in order to demonstrate impact of the CRP to wider industry internationally, shine a light on the innovative R&D being undertaken, and extend the influence and impact of TWI and its Industrial Member companies.
CRP project delivery
Participation in the CRP is available exclusively to TWI industrial Member companies, who in turn contribute 50% of their yearly fee to the programme.
CRP projects are selected and given the green light, for a 1-3 year duration, based on topics informed by the most pertinent technological and industrial challenges being addressed by TWI and its Members. Themes for CRP projects are identified through facilitated technology mapping workshops with Industrial Members and TWI’s technical experts, 1-2-1s, conferences, and day-to-day interactions with industry, other research organisations and academia.
The CRP is aligned to the CRP Technology Roadmap and TWI’s Corporate Strategy, supporting both TWI and its Industrial Member companies to optimise, extend and create new technologies and systems, processes and procedures, products and services, and capabilities.
