Additive Manufacturing: Analysis of Low Adoption in UK Manufacturing Firms


Despite widespread awareness of additive manufacturing technologies such as 3D printing and reductions in the cost of the use of such technologies, adoption in the UK manufacturing sector is relatively low and is uneven across industry sectors.  This research area combines exiting research and expertise in two areas of the Management School – supply chain and operations (the Agility Centre) and entrepreneurship and innovation and is situated in the new government and research council focus on Industrial Strategy.   

We invite research proposals and applications from students with any relevant disciplinary background and an interest in interdisciplinary and multi-method research.

This opportunity will remain open until a suitable candidate has been found.
