The Advanced Manufacturing Partnership (AMP) is a national effort bringing together industry, universities, and the federal government to invest in the emerging technologies that will create high-quality manufacturing jobs and enhance global competitiveness.

President Obama recently announced the Advanced Manufacturing Partnership (AMP), a national effort bringing together industry, universities, and the federal government to invest in the emerging technologies that will create high-quality manufacturing jobs and enhance global competitiveness. According the White House announcement, “Investing in technologies, such as information technology, biotechnology, and nanotechnology, will support the creation of good jobs by helping U.S. manufacturers reduce costs, improve quality, and accelerate product development. The president’s plan, which leverages existing programs and proposals, will invest more than $500 million to jumpstart this effort. The president believes that even as we live within our means, we must invest to win the future.”

As the nation’s national laboratory focused on innovation and industrial competitiveness, NIST reports it will play an important role in the new partnership program. NIST programs span all stages of the “innovation ecosystem,” including research, measurements, technologies, standards, and services that enable the development and implementation of advanced technologies that help U.S. industry become more efficient and competitive.
