The UK's Composites Innovation Cluster (CiC) was established with the aim of improving the competitiveness of the UK composites industry, generating 190 mn of business growth, and creating hundreds of jobs. Projects run through the CiC have attracted a number of the industry's key players  including Bentley, Dowty Propellers, GE, Jaguar Land Rover, Sigmatex and Solvay. Indeed, involvement in the CiC has been instrumental in helping some of these companies to expand their operations within the UK. The range of projects run through the CiC has been diverse, and has included: the establishment of a high pressure resin transfer moulding (HP-RTM) process route; the development of dry fabric stabilisation processes and automation for three-dimensional (3D) woven fabrics; and the development of carbon fibre reinforced thermoplastics based on new laminates and fabric forms. Several of the projects has been highly successful, and it is estimated that as many as 24 new products, processes or services have been created as a result of the CiC. In this report, Robin Anson provides insight into the role the CiC has played in advancing the strategies of some of the composites industry's key players. Also, he discusses the progress and outcomes of some of the key CiC projects.
