Integrated Photonics Manufacturing Innovation Hub
Manufacturing Innovation Institute for Integrated Photonics
Vice President Biden was in Rochester on Monday, July 27th, to announce that the IP-IMI, Integrated Photonics Institute for Manufacturing Innovation, will be awarded to Rochester, with over $600M in federal and private funds secured. It was a lengthy competition, and UNiCON wants to give a special congratulations to everyone who has been involved.
As you may recall, UNICON advocated heavily for this project. Below is an excerpt from UNiCON's “2015 Social, Economic, and Infrastructure Priorities” for your review recapping the project. Below is also a link to an article for further information.
