The objective is to establish a consortium not a manufacturing project. The objective of the NBMI is to accelerate risk assessment and the development of robust mitigation approaches for critical nano-bio materials and fabrication innovations by developing common technology and manufacturing platforms through public-private partnerships between federal laboratories, DoD acquisition centers, academia, US manufacturing enterprises, and commercial industries. To achieve this objective, the institute is envisioned to create a community of large and small companies, academia, federal laboratories, and the states to accelerate innovation by investing in industrially-relevant nano-bio manufacturing technologies. Ultimately, a fully functioning NBMI will have both virtual and physical entities that will enable partners to bridge the gap between basic research and product transition by developing verified and validated open architecture processing-design-performance, forecasting, and risk assessment tools for integration of new nano-bio materials and process technologies. Additionally, it will provide shared assets to help companies' access cutting-edge capabilities and equipment, and create an unparalleled environment to educate and train students and workers in advanced manufacturing skills. A successful institute will serve as a technical center of excellence, providing the infrastructure to support manufacturing enterprises at a prototype level that are relevant and scalable; and ensuring that the key capabilities for DoD needs is available.
