NPL-led Access programme to help boost competitiveness and resilience

The Measurement for Recovery programme (M4R) provides free access to the UK’s national measurement laboratory’s science experts and equipment for up to 20 days support.

NPL is working with partner National Measurement Laboratories from the National Measurement System to offer the scheme.

World-leading measurement solutions are critical to business and government, accelerating research and innovation, improving quality of life and enabling trade.

M4R helps solve analysis or measurement issues that cannot be resolved using standard technologies and techniques. NPLS’s aim is to help boost resilience and competitiveness by bringing together the UK’s top scientists and facilities with companies, to address problems in innovative ways.

The scheme offers:

  • Access to scientific experts and their lab facilities
  • A maximum provision of 20 days specialist advice per project – this is paying for the expert’s time and facilities, and is not a financial grant to the company
  • Analysis, results and reports completed within the maximum 20 allocated days

Measurement for Recovery is currently open until the end of 2020.

The application process should take no more than ten minutes, and is open to all UK registered companies who are under the de minimis funding threshold.
