2016 FIBERS National Workshop

Objectives:

  1. To present the outcomes of the NIST AMTech Composites Manufacturing roadmap by the FIBERS team
  2. To evaluate demonstration projects and initiatives that will advance U.S composites manufacturing and leverage federal funding for projects that would otherwise have to be funded within industry R&D departments 
  3. To chart (roadmap) a coarse of future research efforts to be pursued to advance the state of the industry in the U.S

This culminating workshop will present the information gathered from site-visits, surveys and collaborative workshops supported by a 24-month grant through the NIST AMTech program. The final report to NIST will be used by state and federal agencies to identify topics for future composites manufacturing research funding.

When: Tuesday and Wednesday, March 29-30, 2016
