The manufacturing sector is at the center of a stronger, faster, and more coordinated U.S. response to COVID-19 and future pandemics. The National Technology Roadmap for Pandemic Response and Recovery—the first pandemic roadmap driven by the manufacturing sector—outlines a technology-based action plan for strengthening and accelerating U.S. pandemic response and preparedness. This roadmap informs industry, non-profit and government organizations on how the United States can ensure longevity through intentional regulatory and deployment frameworks; optimized predictive capabilities as well as stronger data infrastructure; manufacturing and supply chain networks which drive down response time on everything from PPEs and medical workforce to vaccine development and delivery.
Funding for this project was provided by the Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) through a CARES Act grant. ARMI BioFabUSA partnered with Nexight Group on this project. The technical roadmap resulting from this initiative has been developed to guide a wide variety of stakeholders on the technologies, platforms, and infrastructure needed to accelerate their response and recovery to COVID-19 and future pandemics.
