American leadership in advanced manufacturing is critical, both for our nation’s economic competitiveness and as a platform technology to boost further innovation. The American manufacturing sector fuels over 11% of U.S. GDP and more than half of U.S. exports. High-impact innovation in conjunction with the potential for low-cost energy can help launch new industries and help rejuvenate domestic manufacturing.
The Advanced Manufacturing Summit, being held at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, is the third in the InnovationXLab Series designed to showcase the remarkable assets of the Department’s National Laboratories – our people, our facilities, and our technology – and provide industry representatives with information about leveraging these assets to accelerate innovation and U.S. competitiveness.
The Summit brings together thought leaders and industry stakeholders to explore new solutions to manufacturing challenges and opportunities. This is a two-way exchange, with industry participants informing future DOE portfolio planning by sharing information on technical needs, risk appetite, and investment criteria. The event is intended to catalyze public-private partnerships and commercialization hand-offs utilizing DOE’s broad array of scientific and technical resources.
