The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Manufacturing Extension Partnership program launched a new Policy Academy focused on manufacturing, and New Jersey Manufacturing Extension Program (NJMEP) is proud to be a co-leader in New Jersey.
Funded by NIST MEP and organized by SSTI and the Center for Regional Economic Competitiveness (CREC), the Policy Academy is designed to help states build upon existing strategies, leverage available resources, and spur creative new ideas about how to address major challenges or leverage opportunities around the manufacturing sector.
NJMEP is joined by others representing a cross-section of policymakers and practitioners from relevant state agencies and stakeholder groups to identify best practices, partnerships, and policies to strengthen the manufacturers in their states. The kick-off meeting was held yesterday in New Brunswick and the team will be traveling to Washington DC next week.
NJMEP stands committed to helping manufacturers in the Garden State and this is why NJMEP works very closely with the New Jersey Legislative Bi-Partisan Manufacturing Caucus; and is now part of the New Jersey Manufacturing Policy Academy.
