| Advanced Manufacturing, Manufacturing USA, National Network for Manufacturing Innovation

new report released today by the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) urges efforts to build on progress to date on improving domestic manufacturing competitiveness and encouraging companies to invest in the United States. The PCAST report is a product of its Advanced Manufacturing Partnership Steering Committee, whose membership includes leading manufacturing experts from industry and academia and is co-chaired by Andrew Liveris, President, Chairman, and CEO of Dow Chemical, and Susan Hockfield—who until this month was President of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. 

“Right now we have a real opportunity to bring manufacturing back, and we need to seize it together.  That’s why I launched the Advanced Manufacturing Partnership – to make it easier for business, academia, and government to pull in the same direction and put more Americans back to work,” said President Obama.
