The Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (Nuclear AMRC) is a collaboration of academic and industrial partners from across the nuclear supply chain, with the mission of helping UK manufacturers win work at home and worldwide.

We are owned by the University of Sheffield and part of its world-leading advanced manufacturing innovation cluster alongside the AMRC, Castings Technology International and AMRC Training Centre, 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 part of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult, an alliance of seven leading manufacturing research centres backed by Innovate UK.
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.

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 supply chain development services are open to all UK manufacturers.

Development of the Nuclear AMRC has been part-funded by the UK government and the European Regional Development Fund.

We receive ongoing funding from Innovate UK through the High Value Manufacturing Catapult. We aim to match this core public funding with equivalent amounts of collaborative R&D funding and commercial income, in line with the Catapult funding model.

Our Civil Nuclear Sharing in Growth programme (2012–17) was part-funded by the Regional Growth Fund.
