Its unique un-biased position ensures it this can be done for the benefit of the industry and the sectors in which castings are, or could be used.
Development projects fall into two categories:
- Innovative projects carried out on behalf of the partnership, with results presented to all partners.

- Specific projects for individual partners. The partner invests directly in the research and has exclusive access to the outputs of the project.
