UKRI/AHRC Leadership Fellow Grant Awarded for Ceramic Extrusion Project
Congratulations to Dr Tavs Jorgensen and Sonny Lightfoot for securing the UKRI/AHRC Leadership Fellow Award to support their research into Smart Tooling for Ceramic Profile Extrusion with funding to 2023.
The award will enable CFPR researchers to further explore creative applications with the ceramic extrusion process at the new Ceramics Laboratory at UWE’s Frenchay Campus, and continue to collaborate with industrial partners Arup and Wienerberger.
In the next phase of the research, CFPR will also partner with the National Composites Centre (NCC) to work on the development of extrusion with high-tech Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs) for potential applications in aerospace and energy, and with the CobBauge project at Plymouth University to try to extrude cob into building components for low carbon construction.
