The National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Cluster (aka NAMIC) is a pan-national initiative led by NTUitive, supported by the National Research Foundation and in partnership with SPRING Singapore and the Singapore Economic Development Board. NAMIC aims to increase Singapore’s adoption of additive manufacturing technologies to enhance competitiveness in the rapidly evolving landscape of digital industrialisation. This is accomplished by nurturing promising AM technologies and start-ups, as well as accelerating translation R&D from public sector funded institutions with a focus on commercial applications. NAMIC seeds and enables public-private cross-collaboration, acting as a connector between industry, research performers and public agencies.  It also assists companies seeking capital injection either through project joint-funding or leveraging on its investor networks. 


NAMIC focuses on sectors where Singapore has developed capabilities with competitive advantages, with a view to the future, such as Aerospace, Marine and Offshore, Precision Engineering, Bio-Medical Technology, Electronics, Clean Technology, Building Construction and Design. Since its inception, it has engaged several hundred organizations globally and in Singapore, expanding its outreach and network to include government agencies, industry associations, trade embassies, research institutes, universities, polytechnics, multi-national companies, small-medium enterprises and start-ups. From its inception in October 2015 to October 2017, NAMIC has raised more than $20 million in private and public funding to support close to 100 projects covering industry technology validation, technology translation, standards development and certification, across various industry verticals. By 2020, it aims to raise more than $45 million in joint funding to support up to 230 projects.
