National Manufacturing Institute of Scotland (NMIS)

The National Manufacturing Institute, Scotland (NMIS) is an industry-led international centre of manufacturing expertise where industry, academia and public-sector support bodies work together to transform skills, productivity and innovation with the aim of making Scotland a global leader in advanced manufacturing and a magnet for investment.

The new energy carbon neutral facility, based at the new Netherton Campus next to Glasgow Airport, provides a high-quality environment that supports healthy working, fosters collaboration and promotes sustainability. NMIS is a partnership between University of Strathclyde, the Advanced Forming Research Centre (AFRC), High Value Manufacturing Catapult, Skills Development Scotland and Scottish Enterprise, and comprises four principal elements:

The Digital Factory 2050 (DF2050) – Industry led centre for collaborative manufacturing research, technology and solution development.

The Innovation Collaboratory (IC) – Industry-led centre for manufacturing technology application and process development.

The Manufacturing Skills Academy (MSA) – Scotland’s hub for manufacturing skills and education linking to existing and future providers.

The “Forum” – NMIS interface with the wider GAIA site plus access to on-site financial advice, business support and links to external organisations such as schools, Zero Waste Scotland, Scottish Institute for Re-Manufacture and the One Scotland Partners.

At the very core of the building, “The Forum” plays three distinct roles.
• First, it will be the NMIS interface to associated business support services and will be the gateway through which NMIS’s specialisms can interact with external groups.
• Second, it will host providers of on-site financial advice and business support through providing links to external organisations such as schools, Zero Waste Scotland, Scottish Institute for Re-Manufacture and the One Scotland Partners
• Third, it will provide a “meeting point” for residents of the AMID site, where they can collaborate, meet and network with each other and with NMIS staff. It will have a work café, bookable meeting spaces and other network supporting facilities.
