Blueprint for Action I: Workshop on the Design of the National Network for Manufacturing Innovation (NNMI)
January 16, 2013 ¨ Huntsville, Alabama
Please join us for the first workshop in a new series of public meetings devoted to reviewing and refining the suggested design for a new National Network for Manufacturing Innovation (NNMI), to be held on January 16, 2013, at the Davidson Center for Space Exploration, U.S. Space and Rocket Center, in Huntsville, Alabama.
Who Should Attend?
The NNMI is a collaborative effort to improve the U.S. manufacturing sector’s competitiveness and innovation performance, focusing on the scale-up of new product and process technologies. It will engage small, medium-sized, and large manufacturers, universities and community colleges, state and local governments, economic development organizations, and other stakeholders. Broad participation by these various sectors is essential in shaping the future Institutes and Network.
What is it?
Blueprint for Action I: Workshop on the Design of the NNMI is sponsored by the interagency Advanced Manufacturing National Program Office (AMNPO), in cooperation with stakeholders and local organizations. The Department of Defense will host the event and additional support is being provided by NASA and the University of Alabama in Huntsville.
Invited speakers include senior administration officials and industry executives as plenary and panelist speakers. The workshop will feature interactive discussion on the proposed NNMI design; a discussion of the public comments received in response to the now closed Request for Information on the proposed NNMI; and anticipated next steps. See the event website for speakers and agenda.
