Finalist proposals named for photonics manufacturing institute funding

SPIE Newsroom
30 January 2015

Photonics community leaders, including SPIE, applauded the announcement from the U.S. Department of Defense on 30 January of finalists selected to submit full proposals to secure the Integrated Photonics Institute for Manufacturing Innovation (IP-IMI).

Proposals selected were from multi-state consortia led by groups in Florida, New York, and California. All stress the potential the IP-IMI represents for new, high-value jobs and regional economic lift as well as enhanced strength in the nation's ability to remain a global science and technology leader and to provide the benefit of technological advances to its people.

Full proposals are due on 31 March and a winning application is expected to be announced in June.
