EU funds of £7.5m for a new research centre for advanced engineering in Wales will be announced by First Minister of Wales Carwyn Jones today.

The First Minister will visit TWI Technology Centre in Port Talbot to announce the investment, which will see work start on a new state-of-the-art facility at Harbourside Business Park, in the coming months.

TWI’s new Advanced Engineering Materials Research Institute (AEMRI) will include capital technology currently unavailable in the UK and will provide Wales with a unique facility for structural testing and evaluation.

The facilities will support cutting-edge industrial research with partners in sectors including aerospace, automotive, electronics, and nuclear and renewable energy.
