Manufacturing PA Innovation Program 2023 Expo

April 21, 2023

10:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. ET

Commonwealth Keystone Building, Harrisburg, PA

The Manufacturing PA Innovation Program invites you to the fifth annual Manufacturing PA Innovation Program Expo. Faculty and students across Pennsylvania's colleges and universities are partnering with Pennsylvania manufacturers to develop new processes, products, and technologies.
As part of the expo, we are holding our second student video competition to feature the manufacturing fellows and their collaborations with Pennsylvania manufacturers to advance innovation. Five winners will be announced during the expo. 

The expo also includes a manufacturing showcase and networking event for manufacturers to showcase their products and services and highlight job opportunities, internships, and externships. We hope this networking event will foster new collaborations and make new connections between Pennsylvania manufacturers and university faculty and students. 

Please join us on April 21, 2023 as we recognize the manufacturing fellows and their contributions to Pennsylvania manufacturing.

All attendees must register by April 14 to attend the in-person Expo.
