ACSE’s Professor Ashutosh Tiwari joins the EPSRC’s Strategic Advisory Team

Professor Ashutosh Tiwari holds the prestigious Royal Academy of Engineering (RAEng) and Airbus Research Chair in Digitisation for Manufacturing at the University of Sheffield.

He has also recently been selected to serve on the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) Strategic Advisory Team (SAT) for manufacturing. 

The SATs advise the EPSRC on research and training strategy in different areas, paying attention to multidisciplinary opportunities. Members of EPSRC advisory teams are expected to bring a broad strategic overview, advising, testing and constructively challenging EPSRC and UK Research & Innovation policies, in a flexible, adaptable, multi-stakeholder environment. 

SATs are devised as a flexible resource, enabling EPSRC Heads of Theme to obtain the advice they need quickly and from a range of perspectives from across key stakeholder groups. Prof Tiwari’s key role in EPSRC SAT will be to support EPSRC in developing its future strategy and shaping its research and training portfolio, guiding and advising as a digital manufacturing expert. His selection for SAT highlights the recognition that he has achieved for his manufacturing research. 

I am very excited about this role as it gives an opportunity to represent the views of the digital manufacturing research community in SAT, and facilitate two-way communication between the community and EPSRC and UK Research & Innovation.

I look forward to working across the manufacturing theme with fellow members of the SAT to understand the different priorities and opportunities that exist within various areas in the manufacturing research and innovation landscape.
