Technological innovation is a major reason why the United States became the world’s economic and geopolitical leader. But amid increasing worldwide competition, the United States risks losing its innovative edge, which could have profound implications for its global leadership position.
This report provides a strategic framework for reinvigorating innovation in America, and includes policy recommendations that touch on research and development, skills training, tech transfers, education, city planning, intellectual property, and more. The report relies on research conducted on the ground in US tech hubs, including Madison, Wisconsin; Boulder and Denver, Colorado; Austin, Texas; and the San Francisco Bay Area.
Former Secretary of Defense Ash Carter will deliver keynote remarks, followed by an interactive discussion with experts from tech hubs across the country.
Light refreshments will be provided.
