Headquartered near Detroit, The American Lightweight Materials Manufacturing Innovation Institute (ALMMII) will be led by Columbus-based Edison Welding Institute, the University of Michigan and Ohio State University. Case Western Reserve will contribute expertise in materials and metals processing as well as key university facilities to the effort.
