As part of a Department of Defense effort to partner with industry and academia to ensure that the US continues to lead in the new frontiers of manufacturing, Secretary of Defense Ash Carter announced that the Obama administration will award a Manufacturing Innovation Institute for Flexible Hybrid Electronics to a consortium of 162 companies, universities, and non-profits led by the FlexTech Alliance.

Flexible hybrid electronics manufacturing describes the production of electronics and sensors packaging through new techniques in electronic device handling and high precision printing on flexible, stretchable substrates.

The announcement follows a highly competitive nationwide bid process for the seventh of nine such manufacturing institutes launched by the administration, and the fifth of six manufacturing institutes led by the Department of Defense.
