Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing Institute Regional Kickoff Meeting

The ARM Institute is a national, public-private partnership designed to foster the U.S. manufacturing ecosystem by developing and facilitating the early adoption of novel robotic solutions. ARM’s mission is to secure America’s national interests at home and abroad by:

· asserting U.S. leadership in advanced manufacturing,

· democratizing advanced manufacturing,

· empower American workers to be cost-competitive with low-wage workers abroad and

· aid in the creation of sustenance of valuable manufacturing jobs.

With DoD and industry commitments, ARM represents a $250M opportunity to create a better future for Americans and secure national interests home and abroad by making the United States more secure, U.S. companies more competitive, and American jobs more valuable.

You are invited to attend the kickoff for the Northeast Regional Robotic Innovation Collaborative (RRIC). As regional partner with ARM, the Northeast RRIC is semi-autonomous entity that helps create a scalable national reach for the ARM Institute. Come hear from leaders of the ARM Institute on the latest developments, find out how to become involved, meet some of the other ARM members from the community, and learn about the opportunity to participate in funded projects.
