A skilled engineering and shop floor workforce is necessary for competing in today’s global markets. Trained trade skill talent has not kept pace with the current resurgence of U.S. manufacturing and its evolving needs. This places significant pressure on supply chains competing for scarce manufacturing workforce resources.
In recognition of these issues, the goal of Project MFG Next Generation Manufacturing Challenge is to ignite change. Project MFG promotes the value of a career in the manufacturing trades and accelerates new entrants into the workforce. It elevates the prestige of these careers. And it aligns industry & defense requirements, educational programs, and commercial capabilities & capacities through private-public partnerships.
Attend the Department of Defense announcement at EASTEC, May 16 at 9:00 am and learn more about the details of this challenge, how it will benefit the industry and how you can get involved.
