- To present the outcomes of the NIST AMTech Composites Manufacturing roadmap by the FIBERS team
- To evaluate demonstration projects and initiatives that will advance U.S composites manufacturing and leverage federal funding for projects that would otherwise have to be funded within industry R&D departments
- To chart (roadmap) a coarse of future research efforts to be pursued to advance the state of the industry in the U.S
This culminating workshop will present the information gathered from site-visits, surveys and collaborative workshops supported by a 24-month grant through the NIST AMTech program. The final report to NIST will be used by state and federal agencies to identify topics for future composites manufacturing research funding.
