Universities of Surrey and Strathclyde selected as strategic partners in the future operation of the National Physical Laboratory
Date:7/10/2014

nisations, across the UK through regional hubs; bringing expertise and services closer to user communities who can benefit.

  • Creating a vibrant research community at the Teddington site including a new Post Graduate Institute training of up to 300 high-calibre PhD students, which will provide a pipeline of skilled researchers.

    In the new arrangement, Government will own NPL's operating company with the expectation that Vice-Chancellors of the two universities will join the NPL Board alongside BIS. NPL will retain its role, status and international influence as a world leading National Measurement Institute meeting the UK's needs.

    Brian Bowsher, Director of NPL, said "We are pleased that the Minister has agreed that NPL should be a Government owned company and are delighted to be working with the Universities of Strathclyde and Surrey. We already have strong links with both universities and see exciting opportunities to broaden NPL's science, develop our regional footprint, and continue the growth and impact of our work for UK industry. Scientific research is often limited by what can practically be measured. NPL's research pushes this boundary and works with industry to apply this knowledge in practice making a real difference to people's lives and livelihoods. The partnership has identified a number of ambitious and exciting opportunities to work together to bring about real change in capability, influence and impact for the UK."
