WMG was founded by Professor Lord Bhattacharyya in 1980 to help reinvigorate UK manufacturing. From its inception, WMG’s mission has been to improve the competitiveness of organisations through the application of value adding innovation, new technologies, and skills deployment, bringing academic rigour to industrial and organisational practice. Today we are one of the world’s leading research and education groups, with over 500 people working across six buildings on the Warwick campus plus collaborative centres in seven countries. We have an annual programme of £180m which includes industrial and in-kind support. In 2014 we launched three new R&D centres: the Energy Innovation Centre, the Automotive Composites Research Centre, and the International Institute for Nanocomposites Manufacturing. A fourth, the National Automotive Innovation Centre, is set to open in late 2016. 4 www.wmg.warwick.ac.uk An academic department of the University of Warwick, we are at the forefront of innovative technology, leading major multi-partner projects to create and develop exciting new processes, products, and services that can lead to major breakthroughs and be of huge benefit to organisations, both in the UK and globally.
