Hundreds of composites experts from industry, government and academia gathered in Knoxville for the launch of the Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation, or IACMI.

A signing ceremony between the U.S. Department of Energy and IACMI representatives marked the official start of business for the newly established institute, which was announced in January by President Barack Obama.

The Institute of Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation, or IACMI, will provide nationwide open access to a network of existing shared research, development and demonstration facilities of premier universities and national laboratories located near targeted industry partners. IACMI will offer a rich network of advanced composite resources through partners in Colorado, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee.

IACMI is established as a not-for-profit entity under the University of Tennessee Research Foundation led by the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
