NIST Awards $7.8 Million in Advanced Manufacturing Grants

August 1, 2015

The U.S. Commerce Department’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) announced 16 awards totaling $7.8 million to accelerate growth of advanced manufacturing in the United States. The grants will support industry-driven consortia in developing research plans and charting collaborative actions to solve high-priority technology challenges.

NIST’s Advanced Manufacturing Technology Consortia (AMTech) Program has awarded the grants to universities and other nonprofit organizations in 11 states and the District of Columbia. The grants range from $413,000 to $500,000. More than 40 organizations will share funding for work done in support of the 16 projects. In addition, more than 250 businesses, trade associations, universities and other organizations will collaborate as unfunded partners.

The new AMTech-funded projects span a variety of industries and technologies, from next-generation gas turbines and aerospace manufacturing to hybridized semiconductor and synthetic- biology devices and glass manufacturing.
