July 3, 2023

Advanced Manufacturing International (AMI), headquartered in Clearwater, Florida, USA, has been awarded a $2 million grant from the Florida Department of Commerce to develop an Advanced Manufacturing Learning Environment in partnership with Daytona State College, Tallahassee. The initiative is intended to assist in the development of Industry 4.0 learning pathways for traditional and non-traditional learners who prepare to meet the workforce challenges of the regional manufacturing community.

The project team will reportedly work to deploy a hands-on learning environment tailored to elevate the skills and competencies of students. The long-term goal is to establish a regional talent pipeline that acts as a catalyst for economic growth, attracting new industry to Florida.
