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

Chairman John D. (Jay) Rockefeller IV today announced the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation will hold a hearing on Wednesday, November 13, 2013 at 2:30 p.m. on how to strengthen U.S. innovation and manufacturing. 

The hearing will explore ways that government and industry can collaborate to both foster innovation and strengthen the manufacturing sector. In particular, next Wednesday’s hearing will focus on ways to bridge the so-called “valley of death”, which is the stage between research and production that has doomed many companies before a product reaches the market.
