The Centre for Process Innovation is a UK-based technology innovation centre and part of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult. The company uses applied knowledge in science and engineering combined with state of the art facilities to enable clients to develop, prove, prototype and scale up the next generation of products and processes.
CPI’s open innovation model enables clients to develop products and prove processes with minimal risk. CPI provides assets and expertise so customers can demonstrate the process and prove it is feasible before investing substantial amounts of money in capital equipment and training. New products and processes can be proven; on paper, in the lab and in the plant before being manufactured at an industrial scale.
Within NanoMend, CPI is working on a number of technical areas related to the development of barrier film and the detection and characterisation of defects. CPI are also providing dissemination and exploitation expertise to the project.
