MTC Membership -working with us
One of the key reasons behind the MTC’s unprecedented growth is our unique membership model.
There are many benefits to being a member of the MTC, which is why since being founded in 2011, membership has grown year-on-year, with organisations keen on aligning their long term strategic growth plans with the latest developments in high value manufacturing.
The MTC now has more than 100 members from SMEs to some of the biggest brands in the world such as Unilever, Rolls-Royce, BAE Systems and Siemens. Membership allows companies to maximise their return on investment through a truly flexible way of working.
Our members see enormous value in engaging with other organisations at the MTC, especially in different sectors, to identify opportunities where ideas and best practice can be shared, and proven technology can be replicated in completely different markets.
Companies are able to commission their own fully-funded projects via their membership fees, as well as engaging in our Core Research Programme which enables access to an annual £2m+ collaborative research scheme, where the research outputs are shared.
We are also actively engaged in external research programmes with Innovate UK and Horizon2020, and our membership provide an ideal opportunity to form consortia to bid for major R&D projects.
The MTC strives to create technology solutions that are relevant for key UK markets, to add further value to the overall knowledge pool and open up further collaborative opportunities.
“TTI found the staff at the MTC were very knowledgeable, and communicated well and in great depth. By working with the MTC we were able to meet and discuss projects with a range of potential customers.”
