Lab to lend a hand to more firms

Abstract:
The NPL, which specialises in the advance of measurement, plans its own small firm incubation centre, called AIMtech, that has been endorsed by Lord Sainsbury in his review of the country's science and innovation. It will house companies that seek to exploit scientific breakthroughs by its own scientists.

Steve McQuillan, NPL's managing director, has also set as a "minimum" target advising 12,000 firms during the next 24 months, up from fewer than 4,000 last year.

He says the initial free consultation and subsidised in-depth consultancy and project work the lab can offer should be useful to far more firms than currently use it.

While the institution is working on such subjects as nanotechnology and the measurement of radiation, it can apply its knowledge across a wide range.
