View our client case studies and projects across key business sectors

Healthcare and Bioscience

We work across the life sciences spectrum - for example with clinical research, telecare technologies and biotechnology & pharmaceutical R&D. 

We work with both commercial and public sector research teams to establish proof-of-market viability and in go-to-market commercialisation projects. We've helped innovative firms including Proveca & Tomorrow's Medicines, and Liverpool John Moores university to carry out proof-of-market research to support their commercialisation of new healthcare solutions. 

We're also engaged in collaborative R&D with universities and commercial partners, helping to evaluate market viability and determine routes to market for new technologies in chronic disease management, telecare and ageing

Advanced Technologies and High Value Manufacturing

We work with a wide range of clients supporting innovation in intelligent sensors, protective coatings and new materials, valves seals & cables, carbon nanotubes, mass spectrometry, chemical transport and particle physics.

And we've helped commercial and public sector research teams to establish proof-of-market viability and detailed commercialisation routes.

We've worked with ProAim, Meltech Group and Advanced Laser Technology to verify proof-of-market need and validate prototype functionality. We've also worked with the University of Huddersfield to carry out a feasibility study on smart fasteners for railway fault identification.

Environmental technologies and Clean Tech

Much of our current work supporting the development of innovative environmental technologies takes place via the Centre for Global Eco-Innovation.

The Centre for Global Eco-Innovation, a collaboration between Lancaster University, the University of Liverpool and Inventya, offers commercialisation and R&D support to North West businesses with eco-innovative products, services or processes.

The Centre's free business support means that your company can utilise technical expertise, specialist facilities and laboratories across these leading universities, saving your business time and money, and helping you design, research and test your new product or process innovation.

Proveca Case Study

Tomorrow's Medicines Case Study

Liverpool John Moores Case Study

We work with clients on their commercial product development projects including intelligent sensors, protective coatings and new materials, laser coating and cladding, valves seals & cables, carbon nanotubes, mass spectrometry, chemical transport and particle physics.

We work with commercial and public sector research teams to establish proof-of-market viability and in full commercialisation and go-to-market studies.

We are a solution provider for the National Metals Technology Centre's direct company support scheme. Manufacturing companies in Yorkshire and Humberside can access funding to support product, process and market innovations. These short term and high impact projects can receive a refund of up to 75% of total project costs. Contact us for more information or visit http://www.namtec.co.uk/company-support

We are also a solutions provider for the Future Railway Enabling Innovation Team. Innovations addressing major industry challenges including performance, safety and cost-efficiency will be assisted by EIT through competitive calls. Feasibility and proof-of-principle projects, demonstrators and prototypes are all covered by the programme. Contact us for more information or visit http://www.futurerailway.org/.

Our case studies of ProAim and the University of Huddersfield illustrate how novel ideas for the development of RAM software for improving the efficiency of upstream oil and gas operations, and instrumentation for detecting structural integrity in civil engineering projects can be effectively supported by proof of market grant funding.

Smart Fastener Case Study

Much of our current work supporting the development of innovative environmental technologies takes place via the Centre for Global Eco-Innovation.

The Centre for Global Eco-Innovation is a collaboration between Lancaster University, the University of Liverpool and Inventya. The virtual centre offers commercialisation and R&D support to North West businesses with eco-innovative products, services or processes.

The Centre for Global Eco-Innovation project is part financed by the European Regional Development Fund Programme 2007 to 2013. Since it launched in 2012, the Centre for Global Eco-Innovation has raised more than 3 million GBP in additional funding for its companies and plans to help nearly 300 businesses by 2015.

Its main focus is eco-innovation - defined as helping to develop new and to enhance existing products and services which will, by nature of their design, manufacture, raw materials or use, ultimately contribute towards the reduction of greenhouse gases or the more efficient use of natural resources. And eco-innovation can be found in a wide group of sectors including pharmaceuticals, bioscience, agriculture, environmental engineering and transport.

Many firms in the north west are already benefiting from collaboration with the Centre. Case studies - coming soon - illustrate how novel ideas for environmentally-effective continuous rotary extrusion processes and for developing kits for converting motor vehicles to electric power can be effectively supported by collaboration through the Centre.
