MForesight and Manufacturing USA release report on metamaterials
Manufacturing USA is a network of US-based regional institutes, each with a specialised technology focus. Each of these regional research institute share the goal to secure the future of manufacturing in the US through innovation, collaboration and education.
Manufacturing USA is currently focussing on metamaterials. The network supported MForesight: Alliance for Manufacturing Foresight, a national consortium focused on enhancing U.S. manufacturing competitiveness, convened experts from academia, government, federal labs, and industry to identify the key challenges and opportunities facing metamaterials manufacturing.
The resulting report, Metamaterials Manufacturing: Pathway to Industrial Competitiveness (PDF), provides a series of recommendations for public and private stakeholders to accelerate the development of metamaterials manufacturing technologies in the United States.
