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 Acad- emiesâ activity that will address similar issues as they relate to all MIIs. The work- shop will bring together stakeholders and other interested parties and experts to: â¢ 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; â¢ 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; â¢ 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; â¢ Discuss similar public-private partnerships developed in other countries; and â¢ 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 73
