Maximizing Innovation in Manufacturing: A Look Ahead

In this discussion-based session, manufacturing thought leaders from MForesight, a national consortium focused on enhancing U.S. manufacturing competitiveness through partnering with the broader manufacturing community to inform policies and investment in advanced manufacturing technology development, will explore recommendations around enhancing performance across the supply chain, improving cyber security for manufacturers and developing an advanced manufacturing workforce. Additionally, this session will discuss best practices for engaging local manufacturers early in the technology development process to accelerate implementation, and for facilitating university technology transfer to local manufacturers.
