About IACMI - The Composites Institute :
To realize the benefits of composite technology, our industry needs composites manufacturing that is more cost-, material- and energy-efficient, and that accounts for recycling at the end of product life. IACMI promotes research and development programs for this purpose, which are fueled by our member organizations and designed to reduce technical risk and develop a robust supply chain for our growing advanced composites industry.
We convene to share ideas and successes and to bring together those possessing innovative concepts with those who can help achieve their realization. Then we catalyze advancement and commercialization by facilitating these technology projects and developing the workforce able to carry them out.
We also recognize the urgency of building up a skilled workforce to support growth of composites companies of all sizes. To this end, IACMI broadly engages educational, economic development, trade, and professional organizations.
