Nice bit of technology – now, how are you going to manufacture it?

Nice promising research area? Check.

Good initial results? Check.

Prototypes? Check.


Now, how will you scale it up for manufacture at a commercially meaningful scale?


Ronan Daly and Charles Featherston of the Centre for Science, Technology and Innovation Policy are just beginning a research project, “Pathways to Manufacturing”, to develop insights and a systematic approach to the issues and activities to scale up and roll out new technologies.

Right now they are looking for people who might be interested to provide case studies and examples and they are also inviting people interested in tracking their research to get in touch for later discussion and dissemination events.
