Iowa State University is a Tier 1 partner in the new Digital Manufacturing Design Innovation Institute (DMDII) with affiliated partners across the country.
This website is intended to help industry, government and other academic visitors find ISU researchers that are interested in teaming on a DMDII proposal, and to aid in starting the proposal process.
The DMDII is the nation’s flagship research institute for applying cutting-edge digital technologies to reduce the time and cost of manufacturing, strengthen the capabilities of the U.S. supply chain, and reduce acquisition costs for DoD. The DMDII will both develop and demonstrate digital manufacturing technologies and deploy and commercialize these technologies across key manufacturing industries.
Chicago-based UI LABS was awarded $70 million from the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to fund the project. This award is leveraged by commitments of approximately $250 million from industry, academic, government and community partners.
