Core Research


image45EPSRC and industry jointly fund a portfolio of core research projects which address generic long-term research needs. Previous core research within RCNDE has covered a wide range of topics – brief summaries and key publications from some of the recently completed projects are provided in the link below:-

Examples of completed core  research projects

The current portfolio of core research has been devised to address the needs set out in the RCNDE industrial strategic vision.  The selected projects are aligned into the four Themes shown below and span a wide range of the identified priority areas. More of the research priorities will be addressed over time by the broader RCNDE programme. The programme will enable the UK to enhance its world-leading capabilities in NDE research, and extend the range of modalities and disciplines involved including exploration of synergies with neighbouring fields such as medical imaging, computer vision and bio-inspired sensors.
