About the Event

MxD President & CTO Federico Sciammarella will be participating in a panel an episode of the ISA Fall 2020 Industrial Policy Series on Wednesday, December 9th.

The Manufacturing USA program, currently composed of 14 institutes in 11 states, aims to accelerate innovation and strengthen the competitiveness of U.S producers in specific domains, such as 3D printing, robotics, photonics, and digital design. Each institute brings together a diverse set of stakeholders spanning business, labor, and academia, as well as state and local governments. This session will describe how topics are selected, how the institutes are organized, and how well they have performed, as policy-makers consider whether to maintain, expand, or eliminate the program.
