AMP Second Regional Meeting: Northeast

MIT dome Advanced manufacturing will provide the basis for high-quality jobs for Americans and sustain U.S. competitiveness in the 21st century. To ensure that the United States attracts manufacturing activity and remains a leader in knowledge production, The President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) recommended in its June 2011 "report to the President on Ensuring American Leadership in Advanced Manufacturing" that the Federal government create a fertile environment for innovation and make investments to ensure that new technologies and design methodologies are developed in the United States, and that technology-based enterprises have the infrastructure to flourish here. On the basis of that report, PCAST's Advanced Manufacturing Partnership (AMP) Steering Committee co-chaired by Susan Hockfield and Andrew Liveris was established.

On November 28, 2011, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., the AMP Northeast Regional Meeting was held at MIT. This was the second of four regional workshops taking place in the U.S. focusing on identifying collaborative approaches needed to realize advanced manufacturing opportunities. Topics included:
  • Technology development;
  • Education and workforce development;
  • Facility and infrastructure sharing;
  • Policies that could create a fertile innovation environment.
Speakers included the following:
