The National Academy of Sciences was established in 1863 by an Act of Congress, signed by President Lincoln, as a private, nongovernmental institution to advise the nation on issues related to science and technology. Members are elected by their peers for outstanding contributions to research. Dr. Marcia McNutt is president.

The National Academy of Engineering was established in 1964 under the charter of the National Academy of Sciences to bring the practices of engineering to advising the nation. Members are elected by their peers for extraordinary contributions to engineering. Dr. C. D. Mote, Jr., is president.

The National Academy of Medicine (formerly the Institute of Medicine) was established in 1970 under the charter of the National Academy of Sciences to advise the nation on medical and health issues. Members are elected by their peers for distinguished contributions to medicine and health. Dr. Victor J. Dzau is president.

The three Academies work together as the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine to provide independent, objective analysis and advice to the nation and conduct other activities to solve complex problems and inform public policy decisions. The National Academies also encourage education and research, recognize outstanding contributions to knowledge, and increase public understanding in matters of science, engineering, and medicine.

Preface

The Manufacturing USA Initiative was originally established as the National Network for Manufacturing Innovation program, seeking to reinforce U.S.-based advanced manufacturing through industry, government, and academia partnerships. Begun in 2012 and established with bipartisan support in the Revitalize American Manufacturing and Innovation Act of 2014 (RAMI Act, 2014), the initiative created a network of research centers for different manufacturing technologies. The goal is to help facilitate the movement of early-stage research into proven capabilities ready for adoption by U.S. manufacturers. Fourteen manufacturing innovation institutes have been established since the program’s inception.

Two workshops focused on Manufacturing USA were convened under the auspices of the Innovation Policy Forum of the Board on Science, Technology, and Economic Policy. The first of these workshops, “Securing Advanced Manufacturing in the United States: The Role of Manufacturing USA,” was held in May 2017 (NASEM, 2017b). To revisit and monitor the progress of the Manufacturing USA initiative and build on the proceedings of the May 2017 workshop, the Innovation Policy Forum convened a second workshop, the subject of this volume, on November 14, 2018. The specific objective of the second workshop was to “explore how effective the Manufacturing USA institutes have been at creating partnerships among industry, academia, and government; facilitating collaboration and co-investment to nurture manufacturing innovation; accelerating commercialization; and fostering a skilled manufacturing workforce” (see Statement of Task, Box 1-2).

THE INNOVATION POLICY FORUM

The Innovation Policy Forum acts as a focal point for national and international dialogue on innovation policy. Operating under the guidance of the Board on Science, Technology, and Economic Policy, the forum brings together

representatives of government, industry, national laboratories, research institutes, and universities—foreign and domestic—to exchange views on current challenges and opportunities for U.S. innovation policy. The forum provides a platform for learning about the goals, instruments, funding levels, and results of national and regional programs and for discussing their lessons for U.S. policy. The workshop described in this proceedings is one of a series of workshops and discussions convened by the Innovation Policy Forum since 2012.

RELATED WORK FROM THE NATIONAL ACADEMIES

In addition to the earlier Innovation Policy Forum event, the November 2018 workshop builds on other work from the National Academies. Among these are Making Things: 21st Century Manufacturing and Design: Summary of a Forum (NAE, 2012a) and Making Value: Integrating Manufacturing, Design, and Innovation to Thrive in the Changing Global Economy: Summary of a Workshop (NAE, 2012b), both of which were published in 2012 based on National Academy of Engineering events. Following the November 2018 workshop, a committee of the National Academies completed a study focused on Manufacturing USA, resulting in the 2019 publication of a report entitled Strategic Long-Term Participation by DoD in its Manufacturing USA Institutes (NASEM, 2019). Previous relevant work from the Board on Science, Technology, and Economic Policy includes Rising to the Challenge: U.S. Innovation Policy for the Global Economy (NRC, 2012), 21st Century Manufacturing: The Role of the Manufacturing Extension Partnership Program (NRC, 2013), The Flexible Electronics Opportunity (NRC, 2014), Building America’s Skilled Technical Workforce (NASEM, 2017a), and the May 2017 workshop proceedings, Securing Advanced Manufacturing in the United States: The Role of Manufacturing USA: Proceedings of a Workshop (NASEM, 2017b).

ROLE OF THE PLANNING COMMITTEE

This proceedings has been prepared by the workshop rapporteurs as a factual summary of what occurred at the workshop. The planning committee’s role was limited to planning and convening the workshop.

The Manufacturing USA initiative seeks to reinforce U.S.-based advanced manufacturing through partnerships among industry, academia, and government. Started in 2012 and established with bipartisan support by the Revitalize American Manufacturing and Innovation Act of 2014, the initiative envisages a nationwide network of research centers for manufacturing innovation. Some 14 manufacturing innovation institutes have been established to facilitate the movement of early-stage research into proven capabilities ready for adoption by U.S. manufacturers.

To better understand the role and experiences of the Manufacturing USA institutes, a committee of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine convened a workshop on May 23, 2017 drawing together institute directors and manufacturing policy experts along with leaders from industry, academia, and government. Given the continued prominence of enhancing domestic manufacturing and international competitiveness in public policy discussions, the National Academies convened a second workshop on November 14, 2018, to monitor the progress of the Manufacturing USA institutes. This publication summarizes the presentations and discussions from this second workshop.
