The EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Additive Manufacturing is a new nucleus of research activity focused on next generation multifunctional Additive Manufacturing (AM) technology. Based at the University of Nottingham, the fundamental and translational research carried out within this world-class Centre will help shape the future national and international AM research agenda.
The focus of the Centre’s activity is to work closely with businesses to tackle major research challenges, ensuring that the UK remains at the forefront of AM and its application in industry. The successful commercial exploitation of the Centre’s research in order to meet industrial and national need for cutting edge, low carbon manufacturing technologies is a key priority.
The Centre was formally opened on Tuesday 13th March 2013 by the Chancellor of The University of Nottingham, Sir Andrew Witty, and the Vice-Chancellor, Professor David Greenaway.
