Dr. Nabil Nasr (Director, Golisano Institute for Sustainability & Center for Remanufacturing and Resource Recovery, Rochester Institute of Technology) invited NIST to participate in the Strategic Dialogue on Remanufacturing Policy meeting January 24-25, 2011, hosted by the Council on Competitiveness and Rochester Institute of Technology, at the Park Hyatt Washington Hotel, Washington, DC. El Staff Chris Currens, Kevin Lyons, Sudarsan Rachuri, and Shaw Feng participated. This meeting brought together leaders from the remanufacturing sector, the industrial research sector, consortia, executives of the Office of Trade Representative, representatives of International Trade Agency, and other subject matter experts to address the pressing issues facing remanufacturers. The meeting participants will also play an important role in developing an agenda and roadmap for a re-launch of the Remanufacturing Industries Council (RIC), and to set initial directions for the Council and identify/prioritize cross-cutting challenges for the Council to address. The RIC provides an umbrella representing the diverse sectors of the ReMan industry.
