As 2020 draws to a close, we are proud to celebrate our two year anniversary and the success of the CPE programme so far.
Our team have supported 36 businesses on 45 R&D projects in the West Wales and the Valleys since CPE began in December 2018. Together with our industrial collaborators, CPE projects have led to the submission of several UK grant applications to the value of £540k.
CPE’s brand new thin film coating facility was successfully installed and fully commissioned whilst facing logistical challenges as a result of the global pandemic. Work will begin on the first thin film CPE project in the New Year.
We are incredibly grateful to be able to continue to momentum of the CPE programme throughout this year and are thankful to our industrial collaborators for their support. We look forward to another year of CPE projects and supporting the wealth of innovative SMEs in the West Wales and the Valleys.
