About the Project
The opportunities presented by digital transformation are great but are often impeded by a lack of vision, actionable plans, resources, cyber assurance, and other factors. U.S. manufacturers are faced with an urgent challenge to seize this opportunity and make wise technology investments. While many MxD projects focus on deployable outcomes, digital tools and technologies evolve at a rapid pace, and emerging early-stage research and technologies play a crucial role in driving innovation forward by providing the foundation for applied research and later stage commercialization.
The purpose of this Request for Information (RFI) is to seek information from academia, research laboratories, innovation centers, incubators/accelerators, and other stakeholders, on emerging and upcoming technology research in advanced/digital manufacturing—preferably in Technology Readiness Levels (TRL) 1-4 that can transition into applied technology research within the next three years.
RFI responses are due on or before November 14, 2019, 5:00pm CST.
Any individual from the above may submit a response to this RFI; MxD membership is not required to submit a response but MxD members are encouraged to apply and highlight their current innovative research. All parties with information relevant to the RFI titled subject are encouraged to submit a response.
