2 Foreword – Chairman and Founder The continued success of WMG, over the past thirty four years, is the result of cutting edge research, renowned education programmes and knowledge transfer, working in partnership with companies around the world. As one of the world’s leading research and education groups we are cited frequently as an international role model for how academia and industry can work together successfully. I feel passionately that UK organisations should exploit exciting new technologies and produce high-quality innovative products and processes in order to succeed on a global stage. There is a clear role for universities in applying their knowledge and skills to business and technology challenges. At WMG, innovative thinking is at the heart of everything we do. In a global environment technology and products are fundamental to developments in all industries. We have taken the knowledge and expertise we have built in the manufacturing sector and applied it successfully to other sectors. Through our multidisciplinary approach we provide organisations of all sizes with opportunities to engage in hi-tech research, development and innovation, leading to new processes and products or services that customers actually want. For example, we have a partnership with Tata Steel researching and developing steels processing. This will focus on the physico-chemical aspects relating to iron and steel manufacturing and usage, including ore reduction, alloy chemistry and cleanliness control, segregation, and scaling. We are also creating the National Automotive Innovation Centre which will develop new technologies for low carbon mobility, working with partners from OEMs to component makers to create a critical mass of research capability. We’ll work with supply chain partners and the UK Automotive Council, as well as research laboratories in the US, India, Japan, and China. The Centre will also address the shortage of skilled R&D staff in the automotive supply chain, creating a pipeline of people into companies. Through the delivery of our undergraduate, postgraduate and post-experience education we are enabling inspirational leadership by transferring our valuable knowledge and expertise to students at all stages of their careers. We are a leading international centre for engineering, technology and business management studies with a network of UK and overseas centres. Collaborating with business and other organisations, we have developed focused programmes based on real world scenarios that enable our students to succeed in a constantly changing international environment.
