ITS wins grant for UK-Canada Collaboration on Multiphase Flow Metering

ITS is pleased to announce that it has won grant funding from the UK’s innovation agency, Innovate UK, as part of a joint UK and Canadian funding competition under the EUREKA Framework.

Our proposal, entitled “Enhancing the performance of an electrical tomography based multi-phase flow meter using machine learning algorithms”, was revealed to be successful in late 2019 and work has now started on the project. Our Canadian collaboration partner in this project will be Saskatchewan Research Council, one of the country’s leading providers of applied research, development and demonstration (RD&D) and technology commercialisation. The University of Birmingham and University of Alberta act as additional collaboration partners in this project.

ITS CEO, Ken Primrose, says: “This is fantastic news for ITS to receive this grant from Innovate UK. Research and Development is at the heart of what we do and how we ensure our technology remains cutting-edge. We’re particularly proud to be able to deliver our equipment and remain on schedule, despite the challenging situation we currently find ourselves with Covid-19 and its global impact.”

Innovate UK drives productivity and economic growth by supporting businesses to develop and realise the potential of new ideas.

The EUREKA funding competition was set to encourage support collaborative research and development projects, resulting in a new product, service or industrial process. Projects had to be innovative, involve a technological risk and target large global markets.
