Summit ’18: Talent Is Indispensable for Manufacturing Competitiveness

America needs investment in both production and innovation capacities.

There’s consensus: we need to start early, building interest among younger students across the country. Similarly, we need smart strategies to encourage development of domestic talent in leading edge fields in engineering — starting with K-12 education.
