£5m D2N2 investment to help build advanced manufacturing centre

£5m D2N2 investment to help build advanced manufacturing centre

Added to MTDCNC by MTDCNC on 18 September 2016

A hi-tech centre to promote advanced manufacturing know-how in Nottingham will receive £5million from the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership.

Construction on the University of Nottingham’s Institute of Advanced Manufacturing is due to be completed by the end of 2017. It will aim to deliver world class facilities for training, teaching and research in advanced manufacturing; producing highly skilled graduates to benefit the local and wider economy.

Building the Institute will cost around £23million, with £18.1m coming from the University of Nottingham and £5m from the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership’s Local Growth Fund – a sum which has just been agreed by D2N2’s Infrastructure and Investment Board.

The new Institute will create 8,000 square metres of research and training space.

It is anticipated that it will create dozens of jobs in its first five years; as well as proving a huge help to manufacturing businesses in the LEP area and beyond, with expertise to address their technical issues and aiding them in the bringing forward of new products.

David Ralph, Chief Executive of the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership, said: “This will be a world-class facility to promote advanced manufacturing in the D2N2 LEP area and the wider economy.

“The new Institute will align with the Government’s desire for a new industrial strategy, in key sectors such as advanced manufacturing, and with the ambitions of D2N2’s own programmes; to enable area companies to innovate, create new products and grow.
