Advanced Manufacturing Technology Consortia (AMTech)

The NIST Advanced Manufacturing Technology Consortia (AMTech) program was a competitive grants program created to establish new or strengthen existing industry-driven consortia that address high-priority research challenges in order to grow advanced manufacturing in the United States. Competitions were held in 2013 and 2014, and awards were made in 2014 and 2015.  All of the 35 awards except one have since concluded and no further awards have been made. Numerous technology roadmaps resulted from these awards and are available via the links below.  Many of the Manufacturing USA® institutes made use of AmTech roadmaps in determining which R&D projects to pursue. Five Manufacturing USA institutes were created as a result of AmTech projects: 1. AIM Photonics, 2. MxD: The Digital Manufacturing Institute (f/k/a DMDII), 3. LIFT (lightweight metals); 4. NIIMBL (biopharmaceuticals); and 5. REMADE (sustainable manufacturing).
