One of the critical elements for the success of the Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation, or IACMI, announced by President Barack Obama in January, is collaborating with some of the leading institutes, research centers, and companies around the world.
Led by UT and Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the group has built a number of relationships and recently welcomed one such partner, the American Composites Manufacturers Association, or ACMA, to campus.
ACMA leadership got to learn firsthand about advanced manufacturing taking place at UT and ORNL. They also got to visit with one of their former leaders.
