HTRC, CoventryUK – A 5,800 sq.m centre will be built at Antsy Park, Coventry, following a £40m ($67m) investment by the OEM, plus a £20m government grant via the Higher Education Funding Council for England’s (HEFCE) UK Research Partnership Investment Fund (UKRPIF).

A collaboration between Rolls-Royce and the University of Birmingham, the High Temperature Research Centre (HTRC) will focus initially on the key design and manufacturing aspects of investment casting.
