Our history: Accelerating manufacturing innovation

Our seven centres of industrial innovation were brought together in 2011 by Innovate UK, the UK’s innovation agency, to accelerate the commercialisation of innovative new products and processes.

Who we are
Group of trainee manufacturers

Industrial partners since 2011

SME partners since 2011

Commercial and collaborative R&D projects since 2011

Over our decade of work, we have helped more and more businesses each year to grasp the opportunity of innovation and grow.

We’re helping to move cutting-edge manufacturing research from the UK’s world-leading universities into the commercial market, supporting companies to transform the products they sell, the way they make them and the skills of their workforce.
