Sustainable Advanced Manufacturing is a £5.1M project to support the implementation of product and process development, and the introduction of technology to the SME manufacturing sector, in the NE LEP area. The project is part funded by ERDF (£2.6M) and the University of Sunderland, who are investing £2.5M and managing the delivery of this project.
The University of Sunderland have committed significant academic resources and recruited industrial specialists to support the delivery of both practical and research support. The project has in excess of £800K in grants to support capital, product validation, equipment and other financial inhibitors to driving strategic development of both product and process.
The SAM Project is funded until December 2020. We recommend early engagement as resources are quickly becoming occupied with projects across the regions manufacturing SME base. The engineers, researchers, grants and access to capital are here for your support to allow the North East to lead the way in product, process and technology innovation.
