On November 5, the U.S. Department of Defense announced the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), for an Integrated Photonics Institute for Manufacturing Innovation (IP-IMI). The institute will be funded with approximately $110 million by the Department of Defense and must be matched 1:1 by the private sector. The manufacturing institute will be led by a non-profit and consist of large, medium, and small companies, as well as, universities and other educational institutions. In addition to bridging the gap between research and product development, the IP-IMIs will have a workforce and education component.
