The International Consortium for Advanced Manufacturing Research (ICAMR) has been named a 2015 National Academy of Inventors (NAI) Institutional Member. This distinction recognizes ICAMR for its outstanding contributions to furthering innovation.
“ICAMR [an industry-led consortium] is filling the role of ‘internet-of-things’ marketplace leader,” said CEO Chester Kennedy. “And being affiliated with strong advocates of innovation like the NAI is a bold statement, solidifying our intent to partner with the nation’s leading innovators.”
ICAMR joins 18 Florida institutions, primarily research universities and centers, in supporting the NAI.
Institutional members are recognized as supporting the 582 total NAI Fellows who represent more than 190 research universities and governmental and non-profit research institutes. The 168 Fellows inducted for 2015 account for 5,368 issued U.S. patents, bringing the collective patents held by all NAI Fellows to more than 20,000.
Established in 2014 by industry leaders and community stakeholders, ICAMR is developing advanced platforms for manufacturing the next-generation of silicon wafers for use in photonics and smart sensor applications. By 2020 over 50 billion electronic devices will be connected by sensors, making ICAMR a true pioneer in its industry.
