We have seen first-hand how public-private partnerships can benefit efforts to improve supply chain resilience. The new SecureAmerica Institute at Texas A&M University is one such a partnership, made up of a network of about 100 partners across several technical domains within the manufacturing base. The program employs a novel interdisciplinary paradigm to build on policy, economics, and supply chain management research and education.
Technical projects from Deloitte, Morgan State University, Ohio State University, New York University, Raytheon Technology Research Center, University of Texas Dallas, Amentum, North Carolina State University, and URSA Major Technologies were competitively selected for a total funding portfolio of more than $5 million.
The SecureAmerica Institute, led by The Texas A&M University System and managed by the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, has released a $4 million project call as part of a nationwide initiative for a secure and resilient U.S. manufacturing and industrial base.
