A

Statement of Task

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine shall appoint an ad hoc committee to plan and organize a fast-track consensus study based principally on a workshop that addresses issues associated with the long-term sustainability of the Manufacturing Innovation Institutes (MIIs) now supported by the Department of Defense (DoD), and to provide input for a potential, longer-term National Academies’ activity that will address similar issues as they relate to all MIIs. The workshop will bring together stakeholders and other interested parties and experts to:

  • Consider the business models used to stand up and operate, on a long-term basis, the eight existing DoD MIIs and the degree to which these MIIs have contributed to DoD goals;
  • Evaluate lessons learned in developing and implementing the public-private partnerships adopted in those MIIs and what changes may be needed for their long-term sustainability in contributing to DoD goals;
  • Evaluate the potential values and costs that would accrue to DoD from further long-term engagement with the MIIs under various scenarios and funding structures;
  • Discuss similar public-private partnerships developed in other countries; and
  • Identify topics that could be addressed in a follow-on consensus study that would be designed to conduct a national review of all MIIs being operated

under the auspices of DoD, the Department of Energy (DOE), and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and to develop advice for addressing their long-term sustainability and the productive engagement by the agencies with them.

The output of this suggested fast track workshop will be a workshop proceedings prepared by a designated rapporteur.

The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Manufacturing USA Institutes aim to protect national security and increase U.S. competitiveness in manufacturing. The domestic industrial base is critical to supporting and sustaining both military advantage and economic competitiveness. Through these institutes, the DoD is committed to domestically designing and manufacturing the most innovative defense systems. Intended as intensely collaborative applied research and development endeavors among government, industry, and academia, the institutes are envisioned to become lasting, self-sustaining national assets. A long-term strategy is needed to achieve this goal.

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine recently convened a workshop to discuss the long-term sustainability of the Manufacturing USA Institutes. Participants explored different perspectives across multiple disciplines, discussed public-private partnership models, and considered international programs in advanced manufacturing to inform their recommendations regarding the future of the institutes. This publication summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop.
