National Network for Manufacturing Innovation (NNMI) Timeline
In his 2013 and 2014 State of the Union Addresses, the President called for the creation of a Nationwide Network for Manufacturing Innovation (NNMI) to scale up advanced manufacturing technologies and processes.
He asked Congress to authorize investment—to be matched by private and non-federal funds to create an initial network of up to 15 institutes.
