IMS is an industry-led, international business innovation and research and development (R&D) program established to develop the next generation of manufacturing and processing technologies through multi-lateral collaboration. We provide global services to institutions from our supporting Regions including the European Union, Mexico, Korea, Switzerland, and the United States of America. Other Regions are encouraged to join the IMS program.
