Opportunities for the New Year Begin with NAMRC Membership
December 13, 2016
New Affiliation, New Opportunities
TVC can announce our membership to the Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (NAMRC). Consquently, the opportunity to collaborate with such experienced and innovative organisations is an exciting way to start our New Year.
Expertise and Innovation
The NAMRC works to bring together the pioneering ingenuity of academics with industrial wisdom and capabilities. Owned by the University of Sheffield, they work closely with The University of Manchester’s Dalton Nuclear Institute. NAMRC apply their manufacturing research and knowledge to projects with Dalton’s nuclear and materials innovation thus forming impressive partnership.
The Dalton Nuclear Institute is a dominant force in the study of nuclear science and engineering. Commanding the UK’s most advanced academic nuclear research facility, their work is integral to advancing towards a low-carbon future.
NAMRC also collaborate with High Value Manufacturing (HVM) Catapult. HVM Catapult work with AMRC with companies such as Boeing, Castings Technology International and AMRC Training Centre. This gives them access to a network of resources of areas of expertise across manufacturing technologies. Furthermore, outstanding research and development facilities connect businesses and academia, enabling opportunities normally unavailable to many UK companies. Ten Catapult networks operate currently, with plans for 30 more by 2030, ensuring UK manufacturing will grow further still.
HVM Catapult is backed by Innovate UK, an executive non-departmental public body. Sponsored by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, Innovate UK work to drive science and technology. Accordingly, they grow the UK economy by working with companies to ‘de-risk, enable and support innovation’. With over 55,000 new jobs created already, UK manufacturing remains strong.
We will be welcoming the NAMRC to our premises next year,
