Centre for Innovation and Research in Advanced Manufacturing and Materials

 

As the age of imagination emerges from the age of information, a need for a new industrial and manufacturing transformation (the fourth industrial revolution) becomes more apparent.

In 2020, ARIS established the Centre for Innovation and Research in Advanced Manufacturing and Materials (CIRAMM) to identify and address challenges faced by the industry as manufacturing and materials systems evolve into smarter and cleaner solutions.

CIRAMM’s mission is to facilitate and accelerate the fourth industrial revolution by fostering innovation and talent.
