BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Louisiana has been awarded a $20 million federal grant to create a national consortium supporting advanced manufacturing research, with researchers from LSU’s Colleges of Engineering and Science spearheading the effort.

The university said in a news release that the National Science Foundation funding will be used to create the Consortium for Innovation in Manufacturing and Materials. The consortium will draw on a network of university expertise, state resources and centers of excellence, including LSU’s National Center for Advanced Manufacturing, to further research, workforce development and grade-school education in support of advanced manufacturing technologies.

The project develops the underlying scientific and engineering knowledge to advance applications in 3-D metal printing and multi-scale metal forming.
