Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District

The Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District (AMID) is a 2,000 acre centre of excellence for innovation-led research and industrial collaboration. With exemplar models of university and industry collaboration in metals, materials, health technology and wellness across both of the city region’s universities, the district produces innovative solutions and training for globally-leading companies, UK firms as well as many of the city regions own small and medium sized enterprises. Our ambition is to create Europe’s largest advanced manufacturing cluster.

The UK’s first ‘Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District’, builds on the Sheffield City Regions world-leading strengths in advanced manufacturing and on the academic research and intellectual curiosity behind our innovative and dynamic sector.

Over the past 10 years 2m sq. ft of commercial space has been built by companies such as Rolls-Royce and Boeing. The district has a housing proposition which currently includes land and planning consent for 4,000 homes, with scope for further expansion.
