The Welding Institute Ltd. (TWI) invited the partners of the iPIM project to actively participate in the technological discussions sparked during the company’s Open Day event. It was an opportunity to meet with players of the industry and explore the potentials of each individual feature of the project. We attended the official presentation by Chief Executive Christoph Wiesneron of the National Structural Integrity Research Centre, and of the highlights from TWI’s 70-year knowledge base. During the afternoon, we had the chance to take part in sector specific briefings and workshops focused on current needs and technical advances.
Over 90 Industrial Members and technical experts visited TWI for the company’s first open day in over eight years. It was a day to showcase the breadth of new and existing expertise, capabilities and services at the culmination of a £60m build project to establish technical facilities for a new era of research and education in materials joining and engineering.
