Keck Center of the National Academies, Room 100
The Innovation Policy Forum is holding a workshop on November 14 to revisit the Manufacturing USA initiative which seeks to reinforce U.S.-based advanced manufacturing through partnerships among industry, academia, and government.
Fourteen institutes, each focusing on an emerging technology, have been established since the program’s inception. Many are nearing, and in one case has passed, the end of the initial cooperative agreement that allocated matching federal funding to them. The workshop will explore the roles that these institutes have played during the initial period of their cooperative agreements, and how those roles may change if federal matching funding is discontinued. The workshop will pay particular attention to workforce development, supply chain and small business development, and long-term, disruptive innovation.
Please join us on November 14 at the Keck Building of the National Academies by registering at the link below. Inputs gathered during the workshop will also help inform the development of the next strategic plan for Manufacturing USA.
