The Future Metrology Hub’s vision is to transform the UK’s manufacturing performance by delivering significant improvements in the speed, accuracy and cost of measurement.

This will be achieved by developing novel embedded metrology technologies and a universal metrology informatics system to integrate design, production and verification.

With investment of over £40 million, the Hub is a key part of the UK Government’s research strategy to ensurethat the UK becomes more competitive and productive.



The Hub is led by Professor Jane Jiang supported by world-leading research teams from Huddersfield, Sheffield, Loughborough and Bath universities and the National Physical Laboratory (NPL). It is supported by 29 companies, across a range of sectors, and UK’s High Value Manufacturing Catapult.

“We have established a unique and sustainable research Hub to develop word-class science and deliver significant and lasting economic impact. We believe that we can drive a revolution in manufacturing metrology and enable a transformation in UK manufacturing performance.”

The science of measurement

…AT THE SCIENCE MUSEUM IN LONDON Representing the University’s EPSRC Future Metrology Hub Dr Hussam Muhamedsalih gave a hands-on demonstration of a state-of-the-art optical interferometry system, designed and patented by the University, to visitors at the Science Museum in London. The equipment can carry out a series of measurements of surfaces less than the width of a human hair in seconds.
