Annual Meeting Forum
Making Things: 21st Century Manufacturing and Design

Monday, October 4, 2010
9:30 am – 12:30 pm, Eastern Daylight Time
JW Marriott Hotel
Washington, D.C.

Twenty years ago, as the U.S. consumer manufacturing sector suffered a near-death experience in the face of Japanese innovations, the MIT report Made in America concluded that, “To live well a nation must produce well.” Is this still true today? What now lies ahead in this world of globalization, open innovation, biology-based manufacturing, and next-generation robotics? How do we inspire and educate students to create the next wave of design and manufacturing breakthroughs? What will be the ramifications for jobs in the United States?

Welcome

Charles M. Vest, President, National Academy of Engineering

Moderator: Ali Velshi, Anchor and Chief Business Correspondent, CNN
