In a world of accelerating technological change, the United States is seeking to maintain its competitive edge. Past US government-funded research and public private partnerships have been critical to the development of numerous key technologies, such as the Internet, that have powered tremendous US economic growth and technological prowess.  Yet government R&D funding is in long-term decline and the value of the role of government funding for such research is being questioned.

Mariana Mazzucato, author of The Entrepreneurial State: Debunking Public vs. Private Sector Myths, will kick off this conference with an address on the significance of public private partnerships in fostering economic growth and advancing technologies.

Fellow panelists will explore the past and future roles of government, business, and the research community in fostering technological innovation and economic growth.
