National Automotive Innovation Centre
The National Automotive Innovation Centre will provide a national focus and a critical mass of research capability, combining the expertise nationally and internationally from industry, universities, supply chain companies, SMEs etc. It will be a unique resource, with an environment to foster collaboration, cohesion and cross-fertilisation of knowledge and will provide a platform for greater involvement in EU-wide research programmes. It will enable academic / industry teams to work together in state of the art buildings, with tailored equipment to create and integrate breakthrough technologies with a whole system approach crossing multiple disciplines. It will address the shortage of skilled R&D staff in the automotive supply chain, creating a pipeline of people into companies.
