Wales to introduce £30m research institute

23 Nov 2016

The Welsh Government is planning to build a new £30 million manufacturing and research institute that will cater to working with aerospace, automotive and nuclear sectors. 


"The world-class facilities provided at the institute will deliver these benefits to large and small businesses and offer a significant asset in terms of securing new investment," said Economy Secretary, Ken Skates."Global aviation leaders like Airbus continue to invest heavily in the talent and skills available in north east Wales."


The facility will be funded by a £20 million Welsh grant and £10 million from project partners. 


Additional details about the facility will be released by summer 2017.
