In September 2017 the AD Centre was awarded the £1M Smart Circle collaborative industrial research project. The Welsh Government SMART Expertise programme awarded the group just under £1 million of European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) funding to deliver a broad range of collaborative industrial research activity over a three year timeframe. The project is match funded to the same value by a consortium of 8 industrial collaborators. The consortium will work together to explore how innovative bioprocesses can be used to improve the overall efficiency of a range of industrial operations.
