Surface Engineering Leadership Forum (SELF) launched

In 2014, Innovate UK supported the formation of a Special Interest Group (SIG), whose members came from across the SEAC (Surface Engineering and Advanced Coatings) community. They produced an in-depth report, in which one of the key recommendations was the establishment of an industry-driven leadership forum that would promote the use of these technologies in industry, and interface with government on developments and funding.

In July 2017, Innovate UK and the KTN (Knowledge Transfer Network) sponsored an industry summit at Cranfield University which endorsed the creation of a leadership forum driven by industry trade bodies supported by research and technology organisations, professional engineering institutions, universities and specialist manufacturers.

This grouping (all concerned with the promotion of this very important sector of UK industry) is known as the Surface Engineering Leadership Forum (SELF).
