Use of innovative technologies to create existing products and the creation of new products. Advanced manufacturing can include production activities that depend on information, automation, computation, software, sensing, and networking.2
Continued U.S. leadership in advanced manufacturing requires new technologies, processes, and skills, especially in the emerging fields of biomanufacturing, cyber-manufacturing and eco-manufacturing. To address that need, the U.S. National Science Foundation is announcing investments in 24 new projects to drive future manufacturing.
Manufacturing Day (MFG Day)—organized nationally by The Manufacturing Institute—is manufacturing’s biggest annual opportunity to inspire the next generation about the industry and careers in modern manufacturing—and to say: “Creators Wanted.” MFG DAY was created to correct public perception and addresses many misperceptions by giving manufacturers an opportunity to open their doors and show, in
Businesses, higher education, and workforce development organizations can use the updated model when developing curriculum, identifying workforce skill gaps, and detecting competencies required for credentials. The refreshed model helps ensure that workers learn skills that employers need.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced $3.25 million for the American-Made Geothermal Manufacturing Prize (Geothermal Prize). A first of its kind for geothermal technology, this prize is designed to spur innovation and address manufacturing challenges fundamental to operating in harsh geothermal environments.
Energy Department Selects Four Projects for High Performance Computing for Manufacturing in Steel and Aluminum Production
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), in partnership with Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), announced nearly $1.2 million for four new projects to support American steel and aluminum manufacturers in improving energy efficiency, increasing productivity, and accelerating manufacturing innovation.
American scientists and engineers invent transformative energy technologies every day, but these innovators often do not have manufacturing expertise – or know where to find it. The U.S.
