NMIS will encompass a dedicated facility that will house the Manufacturing Skills Academy (MSA), Digital Factory 2050 and the Innovation Collaboratory. Along with this dedicated new facility, existing and developing research centres will also be part of the broader NMIS Group including the Advanced Forming Research Centre (AFRC) and the Lightweight Manufacturing Centre (LMC).
