EWI Awarded NIST Grant To Develop Technology Roadmap

June 5, 2014

nist1-thumbEWI has recently been awarded a two-year National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) grant to develop the first-ever comprehensive U.S. advanced joining and forming technology roadmap. This new document will guide research and related efforts to accelerate innovation, to meet the intensifying demand from U.S. manufacturers for improved or entirely new methods for joining and forming materials. Reflecting trends and needs in many economically significant industries, including transportation, consumer goods, defense, energy, and infrastructure construction and repair, this demand is driven by a variety of forces, from the introduction of new materials to the transition to more agile manufacturing operations.
