LIFT provides a range of benefits. The institute’s partners identify priorities for technology, workforce, and supply chain development, as well as provide financial support for pre-competitive research. This effort aims to yield results in technology insertion, maturation, and opportunities for commercialization. As part of LIFT’s efforts, team members will develop relevant manufacturing workforce, education, and apprenticeship programs that can reach students at all levels of the education system.
