Ideas are essential. MForesight seeks to bring the leading thinking about the future of manufacturing to people of different backgrounds, ages, and areas of interest. That’s why we’re not only producing detailed reports but also short blog posts and social media interactions.
Manufacturing Ideas to Watch
A periodic publication of ideas from the manufacturing community. The goal of “Manufacturing Ideas to Watch” is to highlight research and new innovations that could have an impact on manufacturing processes or new products.
Our Tech Forecast series explores the likelihood that further investment in a particular technology opportunity or challenge will enhance U.S. manufacturing competitiveness. For the most promising topics, MForesight engages experts and thought leaders to develop and disseminate recommendations for action in our deep dive reports. To contribute to the conversation on a current Tech Forecast topic, email us at info@MForesight.org. Suggest new topics through our Gamechangers form.
MForesight produces technical reports and rapid response reports.
