  • Estimated jobs created over lifetime of project - 60 jobs.

The £24million Institute for Advanced Manufacturing building, at the University of Nottingham’s Jubilee Campus, was completed in January 2018.

It is a 96,000 square foot centre for world-class research; particularly for the aerospace, automotive, food, biomedical, energy generation, chemical products and digital manufacturing sectors. It is anticipated by the University that it will create dozens of jobs in its first five years; as well as proving a huge help to manufacturing businesses in the D2N2 LEP area and beyond, with expertise to address their technical issues and aiding them in the creation of new products.

The Institute building’s costs were met by £18.1m from the University of Nottingham, £5m from the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership’s Local Growth Fund allocation and £1m from educational charity The Wolfson Foundation.

The new facility aligns with ambitions in the Government’s new Industrial Strategy – and those in the D2N2’s own Strategic Economic Plan – to promote key sectors such as advanced manufacturing.
