NSF Workshop:

Faculty Development Needs for Advanced Manufacturing in the USA

Located at the National Science Foundation, Arlington, VA on January 9th and 10th, 2014
Overview: This NSF workshop, sponsored by the Advanced Manufacturing Cluster in the Division of Civil, Mechanical and Manufacturing Innovation (CMMI),  is aimed at enhancing the development of faculty scholarship to support our future US advanced manufacturing enterprise. Recognizing the need to establish a strong, innovative faculty cohort, Deans of Engineering, and Department Chairs / Heads of those disciplines directly involved with manufacturing research and education  are encouraged to attend, and to bring junior manufacturing faculty. Workshop presenters from NSF and other government agencies will inform and provide insights regarding the attributes, activities, and opportunities to enable higher education engagement in meeting the Advanced Manufacturing Initiative. Speakers: Workshop speakers include program directors from federal agencies such as NSF, OSTP, Department of Defense, Department of Commerce, Department of Energy, and NASA Workshop Location:  NSF Stafford Place 1 4201 Wilson Blvd Arlington, VA Participants: Deans of Engineering, Department Chairs/Heads, and faculty from all disciplines involved in the manufacturing enterprise are invited to attend.  Registration: Academic participants will be required to pay a 125$ registration fee Accessibility Support: While it is expected that participants from academia will have the resources available through their institutions and other funding sources to attend this workshop, it is imperative that accessibility to this workshop be provided to a diverse cohort of faculty and administrators from universities across the U.S. Therefore, travel funds (limited to a maximum of $500/individual) will be available for those demonstrating appropriate need through an aplication process. Decisions to provide support will be based upon disciplinary relevance, lack of availability of other funding sources and geographic diversity. Priority will be given to junior faculty who accompany a dean, department chair, or senior faculty member. Women, underrepresented minorities (African American, Hispanic, and American Indian/Alaskan Native), and disabled individuals are encouraged to apply. Contact: Please email NSFmfgworkshop@gmail.com
