April 26, 2011

The U.S. Department of Commerce has announced the award of a $3.97 million grant to the University of Virginia to be used in the construction of an advanced manufacturing research center, Commonwealth Center for Advanced Manufacturing, in Prince George County, Va. The new research center, a 50,000 square foot facility, will operate as a collaborative effort of several schools, University of Virginia, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech), and Virginia State University, and private-sector companies.

According to officials from both companies providing financial support for the center and the state, work at the new facility will focus on conducting cutting-edge research that could facilitate the creation of manufacturing jobs in the Commonwealth.
