Jaguar Land Rover reveals future plans for R&D in the UK

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has unveiled details of its future plans for advanced research and development in the UK, which will focus on a new technology, innovation and education center in Warwick.
The National Automotive Innovation Campus (NAIC), which is due to open in 2016, is designed to create a large-scale collaborative research environment. Around 1,000 academics, researchers, technologists and engineers will work in the building, which will feature engineering workshops and laboratories, advanced powertrain facilities and the latest advanced design, visualization and rapid prototyping technologies.
Construction of the nearly US$160m (£100m) NAIC is scheduled to begin in September 2014 at the University of Warwick. JLR is the lead partner in the project investing US$80m (£50m), along with Tata Motors European Technical Centre Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG) and the UK government’s Higher Education Funding Council England. Dr Wolfgang Epple, JLR’s director of research and technology, will coordinate the development of the new facility.
Antony Harper, Jaguar Land Rover’s head of research, said: “We will announce the details of the specific research projects on which our NAIC research team will collaborate in due course, but these will be long-term, multi-disciplinary challenges – such as electrification, smart & connected cars and human machine interface – which will help us create some key new technologies that will deliver a low-carbon future.”
The development of the NAIC project is the next stage in Jaguar Land Rover’s long-term research strategy with WMG at the University of Warwick. Nearly 200 JLR researchers and engineers are currently based at WMG, and JLR expects that it will more than double the size of its advanced research team to 500 people by the time the NAIC opens.
