The Nanomanufacturing Conference is one of the nation’s premier Advanced Manufacturing conferences, featuring national and international nanotech innovators, leading researchers, government leaders and visionaries.

Nanomanufacturing is pioneering a new era in American Advanced Manufacturing. The federal government plans to invest over $1 billion in the coming year for Advanced Manufacturing through the National Network for Manufacturing Innovation, the 14-agency Advanced Manufacturing Jobs and Innovation Accelerator, and other initiatives to foster innovation-fueled job creation through public-private partnerships. These coordinated investments catalyze and leverage private capital, build an entrepreneurial ecosystem, and promote cluster-based development in regions across the United States.

These initiatives reflect a “. . . commitment to supporting American manufacturers in building things here and selling them everywhere,” said U.S. Commerce Secretary John Bryson in a recent press release. Advanced Manufacturing is critical to the health of the national economy and provides essential goods and equipment directly to consumers as well as to a wide range of industries, including the energy production, agriculture, medical and computing industries, and the security and intelligence sectors.

The Nanomanufacturing Conference cuts to the core of how Advanced Manufacturing technologies, buttressed by nanotechnology, provide a competitive edge that will drive the economy well into the 21st Century.

Manufacturing accounts for 70 percent of private-sector R&D and 60 percent of U.S. exports – including a record $1.2 trillion in goods exported in 2011. Over the past 25 months, manufacturers have created nearly half a million jobs – the best streak since 1995. The goal of Advanced Manufacturing is to create jobs, grow the economy, and enhance the competitiveness of U.S. manufacturers in the global marketplace.

The Nanomanufacturing Conference is for anyone who wants to understand the science and technology that will drive the manufacturing renaissance in America. “We are pleased to convene nationally recognized experts in the field of nanomanufacturing for this conference and to showcase the world-class facilities and programs here at the Joint School for Nanoscience and Nanoengineering,” said James G. Ryan, Ph.D., Founding Dean, Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering in Greensboro, N.C.

“This conference provides cornerstone fundamentals for the future of our economy, and provides a roadmap for how to bring lost manufacturing jobs back to America,” said co-host Griffith Kundahl, Executive Director at the Center of Innovation for Nanobiotechnology (COIN). “The impact is being felt primarily in places like Greensboro, NC and Albany, NY where advanced manufacturing innovation is already creating tens of thousands of blue-collar manufacturing jobs for America again.”

I believe Nanomanufacturing is driving the next wave of American greatness. Businesses that incorporate nanomanufacturing are poised to be atop that wave. This is a unique opportunity to be educated in regard to nanomanufacturing.
