The overall RCNDE research programme is designed to meet the priorities defined by the members in their 5-10-20 year Industrial Research Vision.
Research in the Centre falls into one of three main strands as shown in the diagram below:
Strategic core research to develop new NDE technologies to build industrial strength in the longer-term.
Targeted research – portfolio of nearer-term projects to meet current and ongoing needs of industry. These are application-driven rather than technology-driven.
Technology solutions – nearer-market sponsored projects to be strongly driven by industrial need. To include development of products and services, and translation of research into technology for industrial exploitation .
