What is EMC²?

The Emerging Manufacturing Collaboration Center (EMC2) is a cross-sector manufacturing innovation center that enables its members to design and deliver cutting edge manufacturing technologies. Founded through a public-private-partnership, the Center will operate a functioning 60k ft2 manufacturing floor that will serve as a showcase for new capabilities as well as a platform for collaborative research and development, especially focused on technology insertion and adoption. EMC2 will also have offices, shared office space, collaboration environment, and a 100-person training/workshop classroom that can be divided into two 50 person rooms. The Center will support the long-term growth of the State of Indiana’s manufacturing industry, which is a key driver of Indiana's economy.

EMC² closed on a long-term lease of its headquarters building at 1250 Indiana Ave. in early January 2021. Refurbishment of the building will be ongoing through the first two quarters of 2021, with the grand opening scheduled for August 2021. Please check back here for updates and pictures of the progress.

Objectives

The mission of EMC2 is to accelerate manufacturing technology adoption and insertion by bringing together innovators and customers to solve problems and advance capabilities. It is difficult and time-consuming for innovators to access customers. Similarly, it is nearly impossible for manufacturers to stay up to date on the latest technologies and identify the few that truly provide effective returns on investments. EMC2 will bridge this gap by providing affordable showcase, development, and collaboration space as well as the infrastructure necessary to operate.

EMC2 will:
1. Leverage Indiana’s historic manufacturing industries to collaborate towards the next generation of technological advancement.
2. Establish an environment for success, offering leading facilities, core training, outreach support, and onsite industry resources.
3. Attract & Secure out-of-state customers and innovators to collaborate, sustain, and grow new capabilities and further develop the advanced manufacturing workforce .
