We review hundreds of research suggestions each year. If you have a challenge or have identified an opportunity that you think might be overcome with research and requires industry to come together, then don’t hesitate to propose research.

Please refer to our ‘Research scope and remit’ page for more information about the sorts of activities that can be pursued. Key requirements are that the activity should be generating new knowledge or resolving an uncertainty, be supported by industry but not able to be pursued by individual organisations and have a realistic chance of technical success and take-up. We can also sometimes offer knowledge searches which help you learn from work carried out elsewhere.
