February 25, 2014
WASHINGTON— President Barack Obama will announce today the creation of two Pentagon-led institutes that will bring together companies, federal agencies and universities to work on technologies that can boost manufacturing.
A center in Chicago will focus on high-tech digital manufacturing and design. And one near Detroit will concentrate on light metal manufacturing.
Another manufacturing hub — an Energy Department-led project in Raleigh, N.C. — was announced in January.
