Research & Development

NMI supports members to do more and better R&D through collaboration and better access to public funding. We do this in two main ways:

Working with NMI members

  • Direct 1:1 advice and assistance on tailored collaboration and funding support in Electronic Systems
  • Workshops and activities around key research threads that are important to the community
  • Making strategic and value-added connections between academia and industry at Regional, National and European level.

Influencing and Informing Fundholders

  • Creating strong working links with fundholders in TSB, BIS, EPSRC and the European Commission
  • Helping to align public sector competitions and topics with the needs of the Electronic Systems industry to increase the relevance of, and opportunity for, funding.

The NMI contact is Dr. Alastair McGibbon, R&D Policy Director.
