Project Selection Process

We understand that companies are interested in Additive Manufacturing (AM), but are unsure where to start.
We have devised an efficient business process in which to work with you to architect a vision as well as deliver meaningful results
Engage
Business Process

Engage

NAMIC engages with industry partners and Start-ups that operate in, or wish to enter, the AM space. We help players

  • Understand AM technologies’ possibilities, benefits and challenges
  • Define problem statements relating to current processes and systems
  • Evaluate how existing AM technologies can be applied to address these problems
  • Partner with other players in the AM ecosystem such as research performers, government agencies, solution providers, investors and consumers to impact productivity, scale and profitability

Structure
Business Process

Structure

With a problem statement defined, NAMIC then works with our partners to structure a successful collaborative project proposal by:

  • Leveraging NAMIC’s Hub infrastructure, IHL network and ecosystem
  • identifying and matching partners with the right resources to ensure success
  • Helping partners generate, protect and secure IP and licenses to commercialize and monetize AM solutions
  • Apply for Co-funding for development and translation of AM technology solutions to industry applications

Co- Fund
Business Process

Co- Fund

NAMIC will co-fund suitable projects through our Project Evaluation Process (PEP)

  • Project Proposals will be presented to the NAMIC PEP Panel comprising of hub members, economic agencies and independent industry members
  • Projects that require minimal funding (<25k SGD) will go through a 10-day fast-track decision process
  • Projects with significant funding needs will be evaluated over a 4-6wk PEP cycle.
  • Co-funding may be provided as cash or in-kind, suitable to the needs of the project.

Execute
Business Process

Execute

NAMIC through our Industry Capability/Translation hubs at NTU, NUS and SUTD will work with our partners to execute projects

  • NAMIC will work with partners to draft agreements covering SOW, Deliverables, IP and commercialization that benefit our partners, the AM ecosystem and the Singapore Economy
  • NAMIC managers will closely track and manage execution to ensure responsive, industry-timeline centric completion of projects

Commercialise
Business Process

Commercialise

NAMIC’s key focus is to commercialise AM technologies and power industry adoption of AM to revitalize the manufacturing economy in Singapore. NAMIC will work closely with partners to:

  • Transfer and implement AM technologies in existing manufacturing lines
  • Market and license technologies developed through these collaborations
  • Finance and scale their business through our network of investors and economic agencies
