The Massachusetts Advanced Manufacturing Regional Partnership Academy (AMRPA) is a collaborative effort of the Advanced Manufacturing Collaborative, the Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development, the Executive Office of Education, the Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development and the University of Massachusetts. The Academy was announced by Governor Deval Patrick at the Advanced Manufacturing Summit on June 20, 2013.
The Academy is an effort aimed at accelerating the adoption of best practices, capacity building and industry engagement in regions throughout the state. The Academy brings together manufacturers, workforce investment boards and academia to help regions develop sustainable and effective partnerships that respond to industry needs.
The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth is leading a multi-campus team of UMass faculty and staff experts and consultants that are designing and implementing the research, technical assistance, and educational activities of the Academy. The Academy is funded by MassDevelopment through the Advanced Manufacturing Futures Fund.
