AIM Higher Consortium Overview Webinar

Growing the Defense Supply Chain in PA & WV

The AIM Higher Consortium is a comprehensive initiative funded by the Department of Defense – Office of Local Defense Community Cooperation (OLDCC) designed to strengthen the defense industrial ecosystem in the Southwest Pennsylvania and Northern West Virginia region. The primary aims include accelerating defense manufacturing research and innovation efforts, fostering improvements and growth for defense supply chain companies, addressing industry needs for workforce development and training, and providing access to capital for growth in the defense sector. Exploration and adoption of advanced technology such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotics, additive manufacturing, and more is the overarching theme throughout all the project objectives.

Join our webinar to find out how Manufacturing companies in the 12 counties of Pennsylvania and the entire state of West Virginia can access information about the AIM Higher Consortium and supply chain opportunities to work with the Department of Defense.

Information will also be shared regarding mini-grants available through the AIM Higher Consortium.
