Driving Innovation in Advanced Materials
New materials and advanced processing technologies can lead to product innovation and business competitiveness. However, it can take decades for a new material to advance from initial discovery to commercialization. The Center of Excellence (CoE) in Advanced Materials & Manufacturing (AMM) is a collaborative initiative led by UWM faculty with a goal of forming a state-wide cluster of experts in advanced materials research and technologies among Wisconsin’s 400+ academic researchers, 100+ research labs and 1,000+ students-across academic institutions.
The proposed CoE AMM will provide solutions and accelerated implementation of advanced materials into manufacturing processes while helping build and train the workforce for next-generation materials and processes.
