The IMS Project Clustering Platform facilitates on-going projects to share knowledge, provide broader solutions in less time, reduce research costs, and expand networks through building of international coalitions. Possible outcomes include combining and collaborating project research activities. IMS selects a member region to lead each cluster and its activities.
Four Project Clusters are supported by IMS, and the first one launched was in Additive Manufacturing. A second cluster is currently in the planning stages for the topic Industry 4.0.
