Embedding Advanced & Sustainable Technologies into Welsh Manufacturing

(ASTUTE) Advanced Sustainable Manufacturing Technologies is a £27million project part funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) delivered through Welsh Government that has already supported over 250 Welsh enterprises in the West Wales and the Valleys, helping them toward long term sustainability and competitiveness through the implementation of advanced technologies and improved manufacturing processes. Led by Swansea, in partnership with Aberystwyth, Bangor, Cardiff, Cardiff Metropolitan, Glyndŵr, University of South Wales and University of Wales Trinity Saint David this five-year project offers Welsh manufacturers the opportunity to collaborate with renowned academic highly specialised experts employed by ASTUTE to develop and embed advanced technologies by providing cutting-edge, sustainable solutions to real manufacturing challenges.

ASTUTE is unique in that it brings together world class leading experts from across all of the Universities in Wales with engineering, science, business and manufacturing processes backgrounds combined with the availability of highly experienced specialists employed by the project to support manufacturing related businesses in Wales through responsive business collaborations.


Since the start of the project in May 2010, ASTUTE has already collaborated successfully with a number of Welsh companies in different sectors.
