Industry Briefing Event Presented by Rutgers University: Cybersecurity in Energy Efficient Manufacturing

As you may know, over the past 7 years the US Government has created a series of Manufacturing institutes throughout the country under the moniker ‘Manufacturing-USA’ ( 15 States now host an Institute, and these programs partner w/ other key States to provide a national footprint. The latest one being bid is for ‘Cyber-Security in Energy Efficient Manufacturing’, and Rutgers University is looking to play a key role in bringing a portion of this one to NJ. The Federal Funding for such an entity is $70 million.

The main question is…why is this important to you as an NJ Manufacturing & STEM firm? The answer is multi-faceted…

  • Energy, its generation, and its costs drive our Industry – especially in NJ.
  • Cyber-Security and its negative impact of pricing and delivery is at the forefront, not unlike those of us who work in the ‘world’ Dept of Defense.
  • There is a Supply Chain of Manufacturing in this area that has not (yet) taken hold in New Jersey, but needs to asap.

To that end – I ask that you attend an Industry Informational Roundtable –
next Monday, April 29th from 2 to 6 pm at:
Newark Liberty Airport Marriott
1 Hotel Road
Newark, NJ 07114
