Northwestern Initiative for Manufacturing Science and Innovation will undertake multi-disciplinary research and education initiatives associated with manufacturing across the broad spectrum that impact both mass-production manufacturing and emerging hyper-customized and personalized manufacturing.
Manufacturing is the ideal platform that integrates discoveries from basic sciences, technological and business innovation, and human-factors “design.” Northwestern Initiative for Manufacturing Science and Innovation (NIMSI) can both focus and leverage our strengths in manufacturing processes and equipment, design, materials, nanotechnologies, computational tools, human-machine interface, logistics, policy analysis, and serve to expand and encourage collaborations with multiple existing centers and affiliations of Northwestern and external partners.
