A public-private partnership, IACMI is supported by the US Department of Energy’s Advanced Manufacturing Office and is one of eight organizations comprising the National Network of Manufacturing Innovation.

The upcoming schools, dates and locations include:

  • Process & Advanced Materials Workshop – April 5-6 in Knoxville, Tennessee (Oak Ridge National Lab)
