Posted on: September 17th, 2012 by NADO Admin

On September 27, the U.S. Economic Development Agency (EDA) will hold the third in a series of regional public workshops to gather ideas for the National Network for Manufacturing Innovation (NNMI).  The event will take place at the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Center of the National Academies of Sciences and Engineering in Irvine, California.

The NNMI is a collaborative effort announced by President Obama in March 2012 with the goal of improving the U.S. manufacturing sector’s competitiveness and innovation performance, focusing on the scale-up of new product and process technologies.

Invited speakers to the September 27 workshop will include industry executives, local and state leaders, and administration officials. The workshop will also feature interactive discussion sessions on topics key to the success of the NNMI and the proposed Institutes for Manufacturing Innovation.

Online pre-registration is open until September 18. Registration after this date is on a first-come, first-serve basis, should space remain available. Click here (http://www NULL.manufacturing NULL.gov/amp/event_092712 NULL.html) to register for this event.
