America Makes Announces Project Call

Plastics Decorating

America Makes, the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute headquartered in Youngstown, Ohio, has issued a call for additive manufacturing (AM) applied research and development projects. Driven by the National Center for Defense Manufacturing and Machining (NCDMM), America Makes will provide up to $8 million in funding toward these projects with at least $8 million in matching cost share from the awarded project teams for total funding worth $16 million.

The America Makes Project Call is focused on those areas with the greatest impact as determined by the America Makes membership participation in the Technology Investment Strategy Workshops facilitated by America Makes and the Roadmap Advisory Group. The Project Call is limited to five technical topic areas with subset focus areas. Proposals can address one or more technical topic areas, but must address all evaluation criteria.

For more information on the call for projects or how to become an America makes member, please visit the America Makes Web site at www.americamakes.us.
