Measurement for Business (M4B) allows innovative UK SMEs to access up to 20 days specialist measurement science and engineering expertise at no charge.
It is now open to companies developing technology in compound semiconductors, emerging new semiconductor materials and advanced packaging who need help with characterisation, process control, quality and performance assessment.
Our scientists work at the heart of the international semiconductor industry to ensure that the UK’s needs are met by International Standards as they are developed. The role of NPL in leading the development of pre-standards research globally provides early access to best practice for UK industry and helps accelerate trust in international supply chains. By supporting companies leading semiconductor research, we are ensuring the UK remains at the forefront of the technology’s development.
The programme also continues to support SMEs across Greater Manchester and Yorkshire, which strengthens NPL’s existing commitments and work in this region, including the Advanced Machinery and Productivity Institute in Rochdale and NPL’s presence at the 3M Buckley Innovation Centre in Huddersfield.
If you are a business outside the current eligibility of M4B please consider the Innovate UK Analysis for Innovators programme
