Academic Excellence and Innovation
Continuing a long tradition of supporting innovation and academic excellence in textiles and colour science, we provide regular funding to the School of Design and Department of Colour Science at Leeds University, and to the Department of Textiles and Paper at Manchester University. This support goes to students for bursaries and to the departments to ensure the academics have the right specialist equipment to help them in teaching and research.
In addition, the Company has established an Innovation Fund in partnership with Leeds University to support early stage technologies developed by academics in textiles and colour science which have potential for commercialisation.
We also support other selected higher education institutions by way of grants for capital equipment.
