Date:7/10/2014

e alliance will work in partnership with the University of Cambridge, the University of Huddersfield and LGC on a range of complementary activities within NPL. The joint bid was also supported by a large group of major industrial organisations.

Strathclyde's Principal and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Sir Jim McDonald, said: "NPL is a world-class centre of excellence in developing and applying measurement standards and its work with business and industry is well-established. As a leading international technological university, Strathclyde is perfectly positioned to help grow both the scientific and commercial engagement activity of this globally recognised Institute.

"Together, we will invest our joint expertise to significantly increase engagement across UK business and industry, raise our international research profile and deepen collaboration with the UK science base. The alliance underlines our commitment to the development of 'gold standard' postgraduate training which will develop the metrology experts of tomorrow."

Professor Sir Christopher Snowden, Vice-Chancellor for the University of Surrey, added: "This strategic partnership will draw on the partners' combined expertise to deliver the Minister's vision for NPL. NPL's focus on scientific excellence and industrial impact perfectly complements Surrey's world-class research in the key areas of electronics, communications, physics, health, medicine, and space science. By expanding the partnership's research community and capabilities we are confident that the effects will not only be felt by industry across the UK, but also internationally."

A number of opportunities have been identified to build on the strengths of the partners to allow NPL to make a step change in capability, influence and impact. These include:

  • Joint working in areas of strength such as space, healthcare and industrial applications of metrology.

  • Developing a presence for NPL, in partnership with other orga
