Inventya is a management consultancy service based in Warrington, UK and recently helped their client, Meta Additive, a 3D printing spin out from the University of Liverpool, secure Innovate UK Smart grant funding to further advance its proprietary binder jetting technology.

Founded in 2019 by Dr Kate Black, an additive manufacturing researcher and expert in inkjet printing materials, Meta Additive is backed by a strong metals and ceramics background. Owing to Black’s materials expertise, the company is focused on developing a chemical approach to 3D printing, and already holds a number of patents to complement its binder jetting machine. With the ultimate aim of facilitating mass manufacturing for the automotive, aerospace, and medical sectors, the firm’s relatively new binder jetting process reportedly achieves high part densities and low shrinkage rates. 

Meta Additive received a £1.2M grant in their first Innovate UK application using Inventya’s bid writing services to enhance their application, supporting all project partners through the application process. Meta Additive have built a world-class team with key supply chain partners from chemical precursor manufacture (EpiValence) through to Print head manufacturers (Xaar), supported by world-leading expert in Additive Manufacturing Prof. Chris Sutcliffe and the modelling expertise at the Manufacturing Technology Centre.

Inventya’s Head of Bid Writing, Carmel Meredew said: ‘it was a pleasure to work on this application for Meta Additive and we are delighted to have been involved in helping secure these funds. This is a truly deserving project with fantastic potential impact! We thoroughly enjoyed working with them and it’s always a pleasure to hear that one of our clients has been successful in securing funding.’

Inventya have delivered over 400 commercialisation studies and helped businesses raise £24m in finance (since 2018). We are delivery partners for the European-Enterprise-Network (EEN), Innovate to Succeed and Innovate Scale Up, have delivered numerous RD&I projects from IUK, H2020 and have a 100% success rate on R&D tax credit claims.
