Launched through a generous donation from the Richard King Mellon Foundation, MFI aims to accelerate discovery to commercialization in manufacturing through end-to-end data collection and analysis.
Carnegie Mellon University’s (CMU) Manufacturing Futures Initiative (MFI) creates a highly collaborative advanced manufacturing research ecosystem that drives the digital transformation of manufacturing, the accelerated translation of associated research discoveries toward commercialization, and the concomitant methodologies and technologies to enhance the workforce.
Through MFI, CMU will be connected to the innovation pipeline spurred by the Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing Institute (ARM) and the rest of the Manufacturing USA institutes – and build Pittsburgh into the country’s leading manufacturing hub.
The initiative will attract and collaborate with industry, as well as public, private, and academic partners, with a mission to accelerate adoption of new technology through interdisciplinary research on materials discovery, product design, robotics and automation, machine learning, policy, workforce training, and education.
