Ceram Accepted as Member of the UK MoD’s MAST STC
Ceram is pleased to announce that it has been accepted into the Materials and Structures Science and Technology Centre (MAST STC) that is run by Dstl on behalf of the Ministry of Defence (MoD).
The MAST STC research programme aims to develop novel structural and functional materials to deliver solutions to defence challenges in both the medium- and the long-term.
Ceram's materials experts have worked on many projects for the defence sector, particularly in the area of developing light-weight yet toughened ceramics. As a member of MAST STC, the team has already been able to submit collaborative bids with BAE Systems and other companies, as well as on their own behalf, through the Centre for Defence Enterprise (CDE), part of Dstl.
Commenting on the announcement, John Cotton, Business Development Manager, Aerospace and Defence at Ceram, said:
"We are delighted to have been accepted as members of MAST STC. This association not only allows us to access potential funding for materials projects, it also allows us to work more closely with companies in the defence sector to help them develop new materials, applications, products and technologies."
