Advanced Manufacturing Technology Roadmap (MFGTech) Program

About MFGTech Roadmap

The NIST Advanced Manufacturing Technology Roadmap (MFGTech) Funding Opportunity was a competition created to develop technology roadmaps for promising advanced manufacturing clusters and establish new or strengthen existing industry-driven consortia that address high-priority research challenges to grow advanced manufacturing in the United States. The emphasis of this funding opportunity was on technology roadmapping in areas of critical interest to the nation, including technology areas appropriate for potential future Manufacturing USA institutes.

A total of $3.9 million was awarded to 13 organizations to develop technology roadmaps over an 18-month period of performance.
