Knowledge exchange:
Building a collaborative partnership.
The North East of England is seen as UK's industrial Powerhouse. The region is home to large international companies including Nissan, Hitachi Rail, Technip Umbilical and several pharmaceutical manufacturers, all which are showing investment and growth within advanced manufacturing and services directly in support of manufacturing.
It was recently announced that a new international advanced manufacturing park will be built next to Nissan.

The proposed park would be in the region of 150 hectares, providing over 6000 jobs and will build on the region’s advanced manufacturing heritage. To support growth and innovation in manufacturing in the region, Sunderland Universityhas created a brand which is recognised by local companies as the key partner to support the development of skills, product design and development and new manufacturing initiatives.

David’s presentation will highlight how the Institute for Automotive Manufacturing and Advanced Practice (AMAP), at the University of Sunderland, supports local companies by creating problem-solving solutions through strong industry and academic knowledge exchange partnerships. A case study will be presented to highlight the approach used by AMAP to generate interest from industry.
