Centre for Advanced Structural Ceramics
CASC started in July 2008 with EPSRC funding (£5.5M) for a five-year programme. EPSRC funding ended in June 2013, but the Centre continues to thrive. The CASC has a large number of projects collaborating directly with industrial partners from the UK and abroad as well as research co-funded by goverment agencies.
An Industrial consortium has been set up to build on CASC's early success, enable its sustainability and to develop long-term and fruitful relationships between CASC-associated academics and the industrial structural ceramics community.
