WASHINGTON, D.C., July 31, 2012 — Today, the Advanced Manufacturing Partnership Steering Committee, working within the framework of the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology and co-chaired by Andrew Liveris of Dow Chemical and Susan Hockfield of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, outlined recommendations for spurring investment and positioning the United States for long-term leadership in advanced manufacturing. The committee’s report, "Capturing Domestic Competitive Advantage in Advanced Manufacturing," has been endorsed 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.
The AMP Steering Committee report grouped its 16 recommendations into three categories: (1) enabling innovation, (2) securing the talent pipeline and (3) improving the business climate. The president’s plan includes legislative proposals and executive actions already being implemented across all three of these categories.
