NERDIC is a regional collaboration of the six New England states whose objective is supporting and developing New England’s defense supply chain. NERDIC works to strengthen and diversify the defense industrial base in New England by building collaboration across the region, focusing on:

  • Building a regional collaboration and multidisciplinary approach that takes a full regional ‘ecosystem approach’ involving multiple partners from across the defense supply chain.
  • Building a viable pathway to sustainability post DoD funding.
    Addressing emergent critical needs – creating regional readiness for ‘future technology’, including industry 4.0 technologies and compatible workforce skills.
  • Delivering efforts that target and support small and medium manufacturers, especially in traditionally underserved parts of the supply chain that are most vulnerable to falling behind in technology and security.
  • The overall result will be a future ready region, that have the mechanisms to build capacity and capability in industry 4.0 technologies and workforce skills.

“NERDIC has brought six states together to work on one goal: supporting the small businesses which are integral to the defense manufacturing supply chain.”
