3D Systems, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and America Makes have teamed up to offer $3 million in grants to Carnegie Mellon and Lehigh University. Each school will receive $1 million for research and development of medical instruments and devices, and other products through 3D printing. Additionally, up to another million will be provided to both colleges as private industry in-kind contributions.
“These institutions’ proposals and project concepts were groundbreaking,” said Jim Williams, 3DS’ Vice President for Aerospace and Defense. “With these grants, CMU and Lehigh will not only be making key contributions to the medical and scientific communities, but fostering technological innovation throughout Pennsylvania as well. We are delighted to support this effort.”
“Pennsylvania is known for making products for the world, and to remain competitive, we must ensure our policies support the technology and innovation of the 21st century,” said the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s Governor Tom Corbett. “By supporting this collaborative initiative, we will tap the best and brightest from two of Pennsylvania’s many prestigious universities to help our manufacturers remain leaders in the global economy.”
