Advancing Innovative Manufacturing in the South of Scotland (AIMS) is a project led by Dumfries and Galloway Council, which Dumfries and Galloway College are delighted to be a part of, along with Borders College and South Borders Council.

The project aims to provide access to digital manufacturing technologies to support SME’s in the South of Scotland. Leading the way in innovation, we want to show how these advanced technologies could help to upskill workforces and increase productivity.
