UIDP Webinar: Partnering with Manufacturing USA Institutes

The Office of Advanced Manufacturing within the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) intends to announce an open competition for a new Manufacturing USA institute focused on the use of artificial intelligence (AI) to improve the resilience of U.S. manufacturing. Through the planned competition, NIST expects to select an applicant team most capable of establishing and leading a Manufacturing USA institute to accelerate the use of AI for strengthening the resilience of manufacturing processes for the nation’s manufacturers. Additionally, the CHIPS Research and Development Office within NIST issued a notice of intent to develop a CHIPS Manufacturing USA Institute, which will seek to establish a Manufacturing USA institute focused on digital twins for semiconductor manufacturing, packaging, and assembly, and the validation of such digital twins in a physical prototyping facility.

This webinar provided an opportunity to learn more about Manufacturing USA and how to compete in the development of the planned AI and CHIPS manufacturing institutes. It is open to UIDP member and nonmember representatives.
