Purpose of the Meeting: The purpose of this workshop is to bring together parties interested in responding to the upcoming Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) for the Clean Energy Manufacturing Innovation Institute on Smart Manufacturing. Smart Manufacturing represents an emerging opportunity faced broadly by the U.S. manufacturing sector to merge information and communications technologies with the manufacturing environment for the real-time management of energy, productivity, and costs in American factories all across the country. Smart Manufacturing was recently identified by private sector and university leaders in the White House's Advanced Manufacturing Partnership 2.0 as one of the highest priority manufacturing technology areas in need of federal investment. Participants will hear presentations from government officials about the framework for the Institute, specific technical topic areas of interest, and anticipated proposal requirements; be provided an opportunity to ask questions about the Institute and the FOA; and have opportunity for networking discussions with other potential collaborators. DOE previously posted an associated Notice of Intent (NOI) entitled “Clean Energy Manufacturing Innovation Institute on Smart Manufacturing: Advanced Sensors, Controls, Platforms and Modeling for Manufacturing” regarding the planned competition on December 11, 2014.
Public Participation: Members of the public are welcome to attend the workshop. Registration is free and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
