On October 27, 2014, the Advanced Manufacturing Partnership report, Accelerating U.S. Advanced Manufacturing
, was released detailing twelve recommendations. The report has been adopted by PCAST, which is led by John P. Holdren, science and technology advisor to the President and Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, and Eric Lander, President of the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT. To ensure a cohesive Federal effort, PCAST recommended that the Executive Office of the President develop and release, within 60 days, a plan for the implementation of the AMP2.0 report’s recommendations.
For the first time in recent U.S. history, the United States has defined a manufacturing strategy with five (5) goals to begin to improve the environment for successful manufacturing. Released on Feb. 24, 2012, the report is the culmination of many months of study by several teams of industry, academia and government agencies working together. The national strategy is linked below, as well as the PCAST report that informed the strategy, the America COMPETES Reauthorization Act of 2010 and the initial report released in 2009 that started it all for this current administration.
