Following peer review by members of the academic community and a vote by the RCNDE Full industrial members, the RCNDE management team has recommended that industrial funding be awarded to three projects:
- Prof. Paul Wilcox, University of Bristol: “Explainability, Interpretability and Uncertainty Quantification for Machine Learning in NDE”.
- Dr Stewart Haslinger, University of Liverpool & Imperial College London: “MUSICA: Modelling UltraSonic Inspection of Challenging defects for Automated analysis”.
- Dr Frederic Cegla, Imperial College London: “Assessment of mixed inspection and monitoring strategies”.
These projects will become part of RCNDE’s Core research programme, and help maintain a healthy portfolio of high-calibre industrially relevant research projects. The kick-off date is currently projected for early 2023, with further details to be announced soon.
Congratulations to the successful research teams, and thank you to everyone who participated in the decision-making process!
