News: New Korean collaboration for AMRC


The University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) with Boeing has signed a new collaboration agreement with Gwangju City and Gwangju TechnoPark in Korea.

The centre, based on the Advanced Manufacturing Park in Rotherham, already enjoys a fantastic global reputation and the aim of this latest agreement is to increase opportunities for companies from the UK and Korea to join global supply chains in automotive, aerospace and nuclear manufacturing.

The AMRC is a £100m collaboration among more than 40 partner organisations, comprising world leaders in the aerospace supply chain, key government offices and international academic institutions. It has a global reputation for identifying, researching and solving advanced manufacturing problems with research carried out on new and exotic materials such as titanium, inconel and composites.

Partners in Rotherham and Gwangju will collaborate on technology development collaboration projects supported by the EU, joint research on titanium and special alloys, and joint research on manufacture of lightweight components for electric vehicles.

The AMRC's sustainable business model, which secures both private sector and public sector funding, has already been replicated in Mexico, Denmark, Australia, Italy, the Netherlands, Germany and India.

The AMRC is also part of the consortium running the High Value Manufacturing Technology and Innovation Centre (TIC) that will be a national focus for advanced manufacturing research and development, with the scale and readiness to make an early and significant contribution to UK economic growth.
