Purdue Calumet Announce: CIVS Awarded $480,000 Federal Grant

The following announcement was sent as an email via Purdue Calumet Announce:

We received word today that our Center for Innovation through Visualization and Simulation (CIVS) has been awarded a $480,000 grant from the National Institute of Standards and Technology to launch a consortium to benefit the steel industry.

More specifically, the consortium will work toward developing long term technical solutions for improving efficiency, lowering production costs, advancing steel manufacturing quality and improving workforce training in the United States.

The initial task of the consortium is to develop an industry-led technology roadmap that identifies and prioritizes research projects directed at applying simulation and visualization tools that strengthen manufacturing performance across the steel industry’s value chain 

The Purdue Calumet CIVS award is among 19 advanced manufacturing technology planning grants totaling $9 million received by new or existing industry-driven consortia aimed at strengthening U.S. manufacturing and innovation performance.

Congratulations to CIVS Director/Professor Chenn Zhou and her staff on the receipt of this grant. You will be reading and hearing more about this award and opportunity in the days to come.
