RAMPing up Pennsylvania manufacturing

Lehigh and Carnegie Mellon University have recently announced a new collaboration in university-industry economic development, supported by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED). The new Research for Advanced Manufacturing in Pennsylvania (RAMP) program will provide incentive grants of approximately $25,000 to $75,000 to researchers at Pennsylvania universities engaged in specific, short-term (1-1.5 year) innovation projects in partnership with Pennsylvania manufacturing companies. Administered jointly by Lehigh's Advanced Technology for Large Structural Systems (ATLSS) Engineering Research Center and CMU’s Institute for Complex Engineering Systems, RAMP's goal is to support rapid development and transfer of innovative technologies that will in turn promote the success of Pennsylvania-based manufacturing in the global marketplace.
