Manufacturing USA Institute Engagement

As the go-to experts for advancing U.S. manufacturing, the MEP National Network connects manufacturers with the research, ideas, and technologies they need to prepare for the future of manufacturing.

Today, manufacturers across multiple industries and supply chains must assess the potential of advanced manufacturing technologies, materials, and processes that promise to revolutionize how things are made — and how they do business.

UT CIS, as part of The MEP National Network, has invested significant resources and personnel to master these emerging technologies and assess how they can be leveraged by manufactures to grow their businesses and strengthen U.S. manufacturing.

Partnering with the Manufacturing USA institutes, MEP Centers are leading the way in making the latest manufacturing innovations available to manufacturers across the country.

Manufacturing USA is a network of manufacturing innovation institutes. These manufacturing institutes are public-private partnerships that each have distinct technology focus areas but work towards a common goal: to secure America’s future through manufacturing innovation, education, and collaboration.

Through Manufacturing USA, industry, academia, and government partners are leveraging existing resources, collaborating, and co-investing to nurture manufacturing innovation and accelerate commercialization.  Each institute is designed to be a public-private membership organization that provides vision, leadership, and resources to its members.
