The Good Entertainment Foundation’s goal is to reach and teach. The Foundation wants to reach the public (especially our youth) with information that can change their futures, using entertainment as the vehicle. The Good Entertainment Foundation wants to teach them that they are the builders of their world. How? By utilizing new approaches and supporting the development of new programs that can move the needle and make a difference.
ARM (Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing Institute)
The ARM Institute’s mission is to create and then deploy robotic technology by integrating the diverse collection of industry practices and institutional knowledge across many disciplines – sensor technologies, end-effector development, software and artificial intelligence, materials science, human and machine behavior modeling, and quality assurance – to realize the promises of a robust manufacturing innovation ecosystem.
BioFabUSA will integrate innovative cell and tissue cultures with advances in biofabrication, automation, robotics, and analytical technologies to create disruptive research and development tools and FDA-compliant volume manufacturing processes.
IACMI (The Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation)
IACMI is committed to accelerating development and adoption of cutting-edge manufacturing technologies for low-cost, energy-efficient manufacturing of advanced polymer composites for vehicles, wind turbines, and compressed gas storage.
NIIMBL (The National Institute for Innovation in Manufacturing Biopharmaceuticals)
NIIMBL is working to enable more efficient and flexible manufacturing capabilities for existing and emerging biopharmaceutical products, and develop a world-leading biopharmaceutical manufacturing workforce.
RAPID (Rapid Advancement in Process Intensification Deployment Institute)
The RAPID Institute serves as an American manufacturing leader convening companies, universities, industrial research organizations and national laboratories to focus on new technologies that maximize processes at the molecular level to save energy with every chemical reaction—adding up to big savings on the manufacturing floor.
REMADE (Reducing Embodied Energy and Decreasing Emissions Institute)
The REMADE Institute enables the early-stage applied research and development of key industrial platform technologies that could dramatically reduce the embodied energy and carbon emissions associated with industrial-scale materials production and processing. It focuses its efforts on driving down the cost of technologies essential to reusing, recycling and remanufacturing materials such as metals, fibers, polymers and electronic waste.
