Irish Centre for Manufacturing Research


ICMR is a not-for-profit research organisation and consortium of leading manufacturers and research groups, collaborating to conduct embedded research and innovation in manufacturing.

Founded in 2010, our mission is to create game-changing improvements in productivity that we deliver as industry-ready solutions via technology transfer, spin-out companies and training solutions.

Our members and partners comprise some of the most advanced multinational manufacturing companies from across the world, through to micro enterprises looking to improve their global competitiveness. We have partnerships with leading academic research groups from across Ireland, the UK and beyond, to match the best scientific knowledge available to real industry problems.

We’re always eager to hear from companies or researchers who are interested in getting involved.
