The new Prof. Lord Bhattacharrya Building is home to the National Automotive Innovation Centre (NAIC), a partnership between WMG, TATA Motors European Technical Centre and Jaguar Land Rover. NAIC is driving the future of the automotive industry from the heart of the United Kingdom. A beacon for automotive research it brings together the brightest minds from industry and academia, to develop future vehicles and mobility solutions. There are over 1,000 designers, engineers and researchers located within the Centre, working on a range of future vehicle and mobility solution projects. Students and apprentices also share the space working alongside staff as our future designers and engineers. A £150m funding came from the partners, with a further £15m (for the building) and £14.5m (for the equipment in the Advanced Propulsion Research Laboratory) from the UK Government's UK Research Partnership Investment Fund (UKRPIF), through Research England.
