ITIF will host a briefing on H.R. 2996 - The Revitalize American Manufacturing and Innovation (RAMI) Act at the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday, April 29, 2014. The RAMI legislation supports public-private partnerships between the federal government, local governments, universities, research institutes, and industry to accelerate manufacturing innovation in technologies with commercial applications by leveraging resources to bridge the gap between basic research performed at U.S. universities and research laboratories and product development by U.S. manufacturers. 

The briefing will feature three speakers presenting about the important role RAMI is poised to play in enhancing U.S. industrial competitiveness by supporting development of technologies that will enable U.S. manufacturers to develop the cutting edge technologies needed to compete in the global marketplace.
