Manufacturing Technology

Manufacturing Innovation Institute Research Forum | Spokane Workforce Council, Spokane

Impact Washington initiated the Manufacturing Innovation and New Technology Adoption Study to better understand the current and projected technologies of our state’s small-to-medium-size manufacturing firm.  We know that technology is the driver of long-term productivity growth and workers’ incomes.

There is a real opportunity for developing successful state-level technology-based economic development (TBED) strategies to achieve substantial growth. The critical point is a TBED will require investments in technology, hardware/software, labor skills, and supporting technical infrastructure (Tassey, 2019).

So, where do we start? This Manufacturing Innovation and New Technology Adoption Study is just the beginning of an initiative to unlock the creation of positive economic trends and develop regional synergies.

We invite you to join us at an upcoming forum where we’d like to share the topline results of the study and see if it resonates with you:

– What are the key findings?

– What are the central recommendations?

We need a firm headcount at each forum so please be sure to let us know you will be attending by registering today:
