The Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) has signed a strategic partnership with Irish Manufacturing Research (IMR). The Anglo-Irish link-up aims to increase research, technology and skills transfers between the UK and Ireland.

The partnership aims to strengthen the ties between the two research centres and promote mutual understanding between engineering and manufacturing research in the UK and Ireland.

Mullingar-based IMR is an independent research and technology organization employing more than 80 highly-skilled researchers. It aims to position Ireland as a global leader in advanced manufacturing.
