First manufacturing cyber seed conceptualised by team including Belfast experts

The first-ever manufacturing cyber seed has been conceptualised by a team which involves academics from Belfast. The cyber seed is described as being capable of producing innovative designs for products ranging from aircraft parts to medical devices. It was designed by a team of experts from Queen’s University Belfast, Loughborough University and the University of York to allow scientists to generate bespoke new products suited to the local environment and available materials at the tap of a button from anywhere in the world. The team has been awarded £7.3 million by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) for the project.
