Officials from Osceola County, UCF, the Florida High Tech Corridor Council and the EDC broke ground on the Florida Advanced Manufacturing Research Center (FAMRC), the 100,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art manufacturing research facility set to open in 2016.

During remarks, UCF President Dr. Hitt mentioned that UCF is competing for $200 million in federal and private funds to house a national Integrated Photonics Manufacturing Institute for Manufacturing Innovation. Earlier this month, President Barack Obama signaled the White House's support of investment in this area and the belief that photonics will be a cornerstone in manufacturing's future.
