Following the funding call for feasibility studies launched in October 2016, we received 53 proposals for review. 11 project teams were invited to pitch to the Review Panel on Wednesday 18 January 2017. It was a busy and rewarding day for the Panel, with many interesting and innovative proposals to consider. Following the pitches, the Panel has agreed to fund 6 feasibility studies. These are:

“Feasibility of Capturing Crafts-based Knowledge in an AI System for Future Autonomous Precision-Surface Manufacturing”
David Walker, University of Huddersfield

“Investigating Spoken Dialogue to Support Manufacturing Processes”
Rob Gaizauskas, University of Sheffield

“Digitisation of Collaborative Human-Robot Workspaces”
Niels Lohse, Loughborough University

“Towards Additive Manufacturing Process Control Using Semi-Supervised Learning”
