The National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Cluster (NAMIC), led by NTUitive, was launched in October 2015 to address the challenges, and accelerate Singapore’s industrial adoption of Additive Manufacturing (AM). It identifies and nurtures promising AM technologies and start-ups, jumpstarts public-private cross-collaborations, acting as a connector between industry, research performers and public agencies. NAMIC also assists companies seeking to lower the barriers towards AM adoption through joint project funding and leveraging on its investor networks.

It focuses on industry sectorial applications and needs, such as standards development and certification, in conjunction with the translational research and commercialization strategies, to help companies co-create innovative processes, products and services. NAMIC focuses on sectors where Singapore has developed capabilities with competitive advantages, with a view to the future, such as Aerospace, Bio-Medical, Clean Technology, Offshore Marine, Maritime, Precision Engineering, Electronics, Building Construction and Design. Since its inception, it has engaged and partnered with several thousand organizations globally and in Singapore, raising more than $46 million in private and public funding to support over 180 projects covering industry technology development, translation, commercialization, standards development, training and certification, across various industry verticals.”
