The Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (Nuclear AMRC) is a collaboration of academic and industrial partners from across the civil nuclear manufacturing supply chain, with the mission of helping UK manufacturers win work at home and worldwide.
The Nuclear AMRC brings together the experience and resources of industry leaders with the expertise and innovation of leading universities.
We are part of the University of Sheffield, and form a world-leading manufacturing and engineering cluster alongside the pioneering AMRC with Boeing, Castings Technology International and the AMRC Training Centre, all based at the Advanced Manufacturing Park in South Yorkshire.
Our applied manufacturing research is underpinned by the nuclear and materials technology expertise of The University of Manchester Dalton Nuclear Institute.
We are led by our industrial members, but companies don’t have to take full membership to take advantage of our capabilities and expertise. Our manufacturing innovation capabilities and supplier development services are open to all UK manufacturers.
We are part of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult, an alliance of seven leading manufacturing research centres backed by Innovate UK (formerly the Technology Strategy Board). This allows us to tap into a national network of manufacturing research excellence – if a particular technology falls outside our areas of expertise, we can call on our Catapult partners for the support you need.
Development of the Nuclear AMRC has been part-funded by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and the European Regional Development Fund. Our civil nuclear Sharing in Growth and Fit For Nuclear programmes are part-funded by the Regional Growth Fund.
