JP Imaging formed with the purpose of combining the R&D expertise of the former Kodak and Agfa R&D leaders in order to create a novel lithographic plate technology that would make a significant technical and environmental contribution to the printing plate industry.


Some of the support in which LJMU offered to JP Imaging, allowed them to identify suitable funding sources, develop consortium for the project across the supply chain, provide technical solutions for JP Imaging, enter into Research and Development collaboration, grant writing and negotiations with Project contracts.


J P Imaging secured £175,984 from a feasibility study funded by the Technology Strategy Board in April 2014.  This is the second tranche of funding secured to develop this technology to commercial applications.
