About this Event

In celebration of Manufacturing Day 2020

Faculty and students across Pennsylvania’s colleges and universities are partnering with Pennsylvania manufacturers to develop new processes, products, and technologies and engage students in manufacturing.

Join DCED to recognize the Manufacturing Fellows for their contributions to Pennsylvania manufacturing and hear from Pennsylvania manufacturers about how these research collaborations are enhancing manufacturing innovation and market competitiveness.

This is the 2nd Manufacturing Innovation Program Expo. The in-person event was cancelled this spring because of COVID-19.

All participants must register for the expo. A Zoom login link will be provided before the virtual session in a confirmation email.
