Collaborative Projects

Britest has built an enviable reputation as a leading authority on process innnovation. Our collaborative ethos and  approach to driving innovative thinking in process design is uniquely supplemented by Britest's involvement in international collaborations outside our core membership.

Engagement in these leading edge collaborative research projects enables Britest to expand its global networks. It also provides an important platform for existing members to both contribute to - and benefit from - leading edge research that can deliver innovation more quickly than they could otherwise achieve individually.
