Securing Manufacturing in the United States: The Role of Manufacturing USA

10 AM to 11:30 AM October 31, 2017

Capitol Visitor Center, Room SVC 209-08 Washington, DC 20002

Manufacturing USA is a nationwide network of research centers for manufacturing innovation. It is designed to strengthen U.S.-based advanced manufacturing through partnerships among industry, academia, and government. The first institute started in 2012, with later institutes established under the Revitalize American Manufacturing and Innovation Act of 2014 (RAMI Act). Today, the 14 manufacturing institutes (which address innovation in a variety of technologies including additive manufacturing, flexible electronics, fabrics, advanced robotics, and biopharmaceutical manufacturing) are working to help move early-stage research into capabilities ready for adoption by U.S. manufacturers.

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine convened a workshop on May 23, 2017 drawing together industry leaders, academic experts, and institute directors to discuss the experiences of the institutes and their prospects for the future. A summary of the workshop is available at

Please join us for a discussion of the highlights from the workshop, featuring invited remarks by Senator Christopher Coons along with analysis by David Hart (co-chair of the National Academies Innovation Policy Forum), Bill Bonvillian (MIT), and Mike Molnar (Office of Advanced Manufacturing).
