Welcome to ASTUTE

Embedding Advanced & Sustainable Technologies into Welsh Manufacturing

ASTUTE (Advanced Sustainable Manufacturing Technologies) combines the latest innovations in advanced manufacturing from eight leading Welsh Universities, led by Swansea. This offers Welsh enterprises (based in the convergence region) the opportunity to collaborate with world-class academic and industry experts in the fields of Engineering, Science and Business to generate cutting-edge, sustainable solutions to real manufacturing problems.

Projects undertaken with Welsh enterprises are collaborative in nature which requires the enterprise to match the level of inputs provided by ASTUTE, this can be in the form of in-kind contributions based on staff costs, access to equipment, provision of materials etc. It should be noted that we do not undertake activities which may be considered as potentially displacing the private sector. Please use the contact us link above to discuss your manufacturing related issues further.

Since the start of the project in May 2010, ASTUTE has already collaborated successfully with 289 Welsh companies covering a range of different sectors.

Cambrian Printers, Commercial Director, David Lowe, describes the collaboration his company has had with ASTUTE.
