The Advanced Manufacturing Partnership (AMP 2.0) is a national effort appointed by President Obama to secure US leadership in emerging technologies that will create high-quality manufacturing jobs and enhance America’s global competitiveness. MIT and the Massachusetts Advanced Manufacturing Collaborative are proud to co-host the AMP 2.0 Regional Meeting on May 16, 2014. We look forward to convening participants who are stakeholders from all parts of the manufacturing ecosystem in this region and beyond.
President Obama has charged the AMP 2.0 Steering Committee with developing detailed plans for securing the nation’s competitive advantage in advanced manufacturing. This regional meeting, among several occurring around the United States in Spring 2014, is an important step in this process. It will engage the manufacturing community in Massachusetts and greater New England on key issues that include developing and scaling transformative technologies, workforce strategies and government policies. Attendees from academia, labor, state and federal government, and local industry will also assess the region’s strengths and challenges in bringing advanced manufacturing innovation to small- and medium-sized businesses. The information and regional blueprint for advanced manufacturing generated at this meeting will not only advance the region’s manufacturing agenda, but also help to inform the AMP 2.0 Steering Committee's specific policy recommendations for President Obama later this year.
