Supported by the National Science Foundation’s Advanced Technological Education (NSF ATE) program, HI-TEC is a national conference on advanced technological education where secondary and postsecondary educators, counselors, industry professionals, trade organizations, and technicians can update their knowledge and skills. Charged with preparing America’s skilled technical workforce, the event focuses on the preparation needed by the existing and future workforce for companies in the high-tech sectors that drive our nation’s economy.
Join ARMI’s Chief Education and Workforce Officer, Karla Talanian at the Building National Biomanufacturing Workforce Capabilities and Capacity via Manufacturing Institutes panel discussion. Of the sixteen Manufacturing Innovation Institutes (MII), three were created to serve the bioscience sector: the Bioindustrial Manufacturing and Design Ecosystem (BioMADE), the Advanced Regenerative Manufacturing Institute (ARMI/BioFab), and the National Institute for Innovation in Manufacturing Biopharmaceuticals (NIIMBL). The impact of building relationships between two-year colleges, career technical programs, industry partners, and the MIIs can lead to transformative change for educators, institutions, and job seekers. In this session, we will highlight the current and potential impacts for each of the three biomanufacturing MIIs, success stories, challenges, and innovative solutions to building workforce capacity.
BioFabUSA, a program of ARMI, is a public-private partnership with more than 170 members, including companies, academic institutions and not-for profit organizations.
