American manufacturing is experiencing a renaissance. Long identified with such terms as “good old American know-how” and “Yankee ingenuity,” American industry is again rising to world prominence after decades of decline. It is a rebirth driven in large part by dramatic increases in productivity made possible by advances in manufacturing processes and technologies. Yet there remain many obstacles to a full realization of the potential of the American manufacturing sector.

Join us for: “Enabling Manufacturing Innovation in America”
Mr. Paul T. Evans, P.E.
Director, Manufacturing Systems Department
Southwest Research Institute

Upcoming event: OVPR welcomes Nobel laureate for inaugural lecture in BRIC Foundations series

The Office of the Vice Provost for Research is pleased to welcome Nobel laureate and senior NASA astrophysicist Dr. John C. Mather for the inaugural lecture in the new BRIC Foundations International Speaker Series.

Mather and co-researcher Dr. George Smoot shared the 2006 Nobel Prize in physics for their work with the Cosmic Background Explorer (COBE) satellite. The COBE satellite provided the first space-based measurements of the cosmic microwave background radiation remaining from the Big Bang and yielded valuable insight into the early stages of the universe’s development (click here to read more about Mather and Smoot’s Nobel-winning research).
