The Research Centre for Non-Destructive Evaluation (RCNDE) was formed in 2003. It is an Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) sponsored collaboration between industry and academia.
RCNDE's primary aim is to coordinate research into NDE technologies and ensure research topics are relevant to the medium and longer-term needs of industry.
Funding has recently been secured to continue RCNDE until 2020.
