Case Western Reserve University welcomes CESMII, the national institute on Smart Manufacturing, to campus as another valuable resource for NE Ohio manufacturers

Join us live and in-person as we launch the CESMII Smart Manufacturing Innovation Center, bringing national expertise and influence to Cleveland and further bolstering the regional network of resources for our local manufacturers. We will provide an overview of planned activities for the center, both on campus and throughout northeast Ohio, and we’ll make local and national leaders available for discussion and collaboration.

Case Western Reserve University’s Institute for Smart, Secure and Connected Systems (ISSACS) is a local leader in aligning regional Smart Manufacturing efforts with national activities. At this event, the ISSACS team will highlight their role as a Smart Manufacturing Innovation Center for CESMII and the infrastructure available to guide regional manufacturers to tools, training, and resources to develop world-class manufacturing capabilities.

The center is designed particularly to help guide small and mid-size manufacturers as they start or accelerate their Smart Manufacturing journey -- with the assistance of our Center partners:  and the generous support of Lincoln Electric.
