Sustainability is key to the CMAC’s success and ability to impact in this field through strong industry engagement and leadership. An industry led membership organisation, CMAC has been created to steer the development of user-led activities in this area, to inform basic research and develop higher Technology Readiness Level (TRL) activity. The aim is to populate the innovation landscape with parallel research activities across the TRLs using a range of appropriate funding mechanisms to address industry needs in a structured manner to translate our research. In addition to Tier 1 and Tier 2 members CMAC collaborates with a broad range of companies.
The demand-led manufacturing research scope was co-created with our industry partners who span the world's largest pharmaceutical manufacturers and a large number of technology companies, SME's and end users from other high value chemical sectors. The CMAC partners make significant contributions both cash and in-kind to support the CMAC Future Manufacturing Research Hub and Doctoral Training Centre.
