Research & Development Consortia

You are here

Through AMO’s public-private R&D consortia, manufacturers, small businesses, universities, national laboratories, and state and local governments are brought together to pursue coordinated early-stage R&D in high-priority areas essential to energy in manufacturing. The consortia – while having distinct technology focus areas - work towards a common goal: to secure America’s future through manufacturing innovation, education, and collaboration. Federal funding is the catalyst to bring stakeholders into shared spaces and to address process and technological challenges, that present a significant degree of scientific or technical uncertainty. Participants in the R&D Consortia gain access to collaborative communities, expertise, and physical and virtual tools to foster innovation of promising technologies.

Additionally, our five institutes are part of Manufacturing USA, a network of regional institutes that each have a specialized technology focus. These institutes facilitate the transition of innovative advanced materials, information, and process technologies to industry by enabling manufacturing scale-up and helping to develop national capabilities that enable future global leadership and workforce development in advanced manufacturing.
