The National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Cluster (NAMIC) aims to support more industries, expand into new areas and access new technologies via strategic partnerships with local and international stakeholders. To date, NAMIC has 3 strategic partnerships and multiple Memorandums of Understanding (MOU) partnerships with various local and international industry players across the AM value chain. These MOUs have translated into existing NAMIC projects and pipelines, with more to be developed.

Strategic Partnership

  • Additive manufacturing (AM) projects can leverage the global Intellectual Property (IP) pool in IPI Singapore for Background IP (BIP)
  • Collaboration between the Institute of Higher Learning (IHL) and industry partner can create Foreground IP (FIP) that is to be registered with IPI Singapore
  • In collaboration with AM Industry Working Group, to advance AM adoption and unlock value for SMF membership pool
  • SMF members pool resources, form a Technology Partnership Group around common Technical Challenges
  • NAMIC augments resources, identifies relevant IP, and implements translational R&D projects to achieve technical objective
  • NAMIC works together with ASTM’s global partners to create a network of Global AM Centres of Excellence to accelerate AM R&D and standards development for strategic sectors

Memorandums of Understanding (MOU) Partnership

27 March, 2018

Collaboration will focus on AM technology standards development for medical devices, leverage best practices in AM medical device regulatory frameworks, based on “Technical Considerations for Additive Manufactured Medical Devices” by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidelines on medical devices, joint clinical trials in local hospitals on AM medical devices developed as well as AM digital workflows in a patient care environment.
