More about ICAMR & FAMRC
Work has started on the Florida Advanced Manufacturing Research Center, with general contractor Skanska USA Building Inc. The overall, $250 million complex will include a 100,000-square-foot research/manufacturing building, along with two 24,000-square-foot office buildings on a 20-acre site near U.S. Highway 192 and Florida’s Turnpike, across from Osceola Heritage Park. The project would create a total of 80,000 high-wage jobs and generate $482 million in tax revenue.
Modeled after a successful public-private semiconductor consortium in New York and Texas (SEMATECH), the International Consortium of Advanced Manufacturing Research (ICAMR) will be able to attract a wide set of advanced manufacturing and technological supply chain corporations to the State of Florida. By creating this open innovation infrastructure and working with the first industry-led smart sensor technology consortium to attract advanced global manufacturing leaders, this enterprise will position Florida as the dominant manufacturing hub for smart sensor technology.
ICAMR is a not-for-profit consortium based on a proven industry-led, public-private partnership model that has been established in Florida to bring together industry, government, universities/colleges and suppliers to drive advanced manufacturing of emerging technologies – initially focused on smart sensor technologies. ICAMR will be an open innovation platform that will provide manufacturing solutions to industry partners that accelerate the commercialization of new technologies, coordinating business and economic development with the goal of generating unprecedented growth in partner company revenues and high-tech job creation in Florida.
ICAMR will be located in and will be responsible for managing FAMRC and the advanced technology commercialization that will occur in the following four program areas:
- ADVANCED MATERIALS AND MANUFACTURING (SENSORS)
- ADVANCED ENERGY
- MANUFACTURING COMPETITIVENESS
- INTERNATIONAL EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES
