2019 MForesight National Summit



Summit Program

We are pleased to announce that the 2019 MForesight National Manufacturing Summit will take place on Tuesday, June 18, 2019 at the Hamilton Hotel in Washington, D.C.  This year’s theme is Restoring the U.S. Innovation Ecosystem: Reclaiming America’s Leadership in Advanced Manufacturing. The Summit will feature speeches from Sen. Marco Rubio, Sen. Gary Peters, and Rep. Ro Khanna; senior officials from the Departments of Defense and Commerce; and a range of industry and academic leaders—all focused on the future of U.S. advanced manufacturing and its implications for economic competitiveness, national security, and other key national priorities. 

To gather input from the manufacturing community, MForesight hosted roundtables with manufacturing and innovation experts and practitioners in seven cities across the U.S. The findings became the basis of a major 2018 report, Manufacturing Prosperity, that explores solutions to reverse the offshoring of both innovation and production, restoring technological leadership and high-quality jobs on American shores. The report also explores how to boost investment in hardware start-ups and scale-ups, empower small and medium-sized manufacturers, enhance domestic engineering knowledge, and strengthen the “industrial commons”—the overall infrastructure and know-how that took decades for America to assemble. 

The 2019 Summit is an opportunity to advance the work of restoring the manufacturing innovation ecosystem.  MForesight will release its most recent report—focused on diverse aspects of the manufacturing ecosystem, including workforce development, engineering talent, translational research, capital mobilization, and supply chains—at the 2019 Summit.  

Now in its fourth year, the MForesight National Summit is a unique one-day event that draws a diverse range of leading thinkers on the future of American manufacturing.  The event will feature interactive panels and offer participants opportunities to share their perspectives on the future of the nation's innovation ecosystem.  We hope you can join us.

MForesight: Alliance for Manufacturing Foresight is a federally-funded national consortium focused on accelerating technological innovation to enhance U.S manufacturing competitiveness. We connect researchers and practitioners and harness their collective wisdom to forecast and develop recommendations on advancing emerging technologies and addressing cross-cutting challenges.
