Become a partner

We offer two levels of partnership, tailored to suit the needs of companies and the annual partnership fee contributes to our shared resources, including generic research projects


Tier 1 partnership

Costs £80,000 per year in cash or in kind.

Tier 1 partners have an individual seat on the AREC Main Board, giving them the opportunity to determine the AREC’s strategy and the direction of its research, in addition to being able to access the AREC’s R&D capabilities and the results of Board and Directed Generic Projects. They can also propose specific projects to the board for approval.

Tier 2 partnership

Costs £30,000 per year in cash or in kind.

Tier 2 partners have access to the AREC’s R&D capabilities, the results of Board and Directed Generic Projects and the opportunity for networking and supply chain development. Four board members represent all Tier 2 members.
