NISCO UK Research Centre (NU-RC) aims to become a centre of excellence in the field of digital manufacturing, new metallic materials and processes. NURC is a long term partnership between the University of Leicester and NISCO.
A multi-million pound Research Centre for metal and alloys was been launched in Leicester in 2018. It will enable the University of Leicester and partners to work with China for an initial period of five years to bring advanced thinking to metal production.
The Centre, in collaboration with TWI Ltd and the Materials Processing Institute, will exploit the UK’s research strengths in metallic materials, manufacturing and informatics, and will deliver funded, high quality, high impact collaborative research. We aim to achieve world leading status in the area of metallic materials and advanced manufacturing by developing patents and translating technologies for adoption by NISCO. We will create an excellent research environment and become a world leader in our field.
