Becoming a member gives you the highest level of support and provides you with a high-profile platform where you can showcase your capabilities to key companies and stakeholders and gain industry recognition through your active association with the UK’s leading centre of excellence for advanced manufacturing.

Membership allows you to direct our research focus and capabilities, and to commission projects of direct value to your business. Close engagement with our research teams will give you even greater benefits, as we can leverage your research investment to solve your manufacturing challenges. AMRC members participate in and share the results of our generic research and development programmes.

Board Generic projects involve research into areas of shared interest, where sharing the costs and risks provides significant gearing of your R&D investment.

Directed Generic projects, involve research into an area of specific interest to your business, funded from your membership subscription.

Working in collaboration with others and having access to the wide range of expertise at the AMRC reduces what might be the prohibitively high costs and risks you might face if you had to establish an in-house team to carry out the research on your own.

Member companies appoint representatives to the AMRC’s board of industrial partners, which advises on the topics for our research and development, ensuring our work focuses on industry’s commercial requirements and provides lasting value to members.
