In a fiercely competitive global marketplace, innovation alone is no longer enough. Many nations, including the United States, are driving innovation to implementation through a whole-of-government approach. Accordingly, the National Network for Manufacturing Innovation (NNMI) is working to create a competitive, effective, and sustainable manufacturing research-to-manufacturing infrastructure. The goal: enable U.S. industry and academia to solve the "scale-up" challenges that are relevant to industry.
PROGRAM UPDATE: NIST has announced it intends to seek applications for National Network for Manufacturing Innovation (NNMI) Institute awards from eligible applicants to establish and operate an Advanced Manufacturing Innovation Institute in an area of national need.
