Keeping the U.S. Competitive: How Science and Education Can Drive Innovation and Growth


8:45 - 10:00 AM EDT



In the 21st-century innovation economy, knowledge is power. But by many metrics, the United States is falling behind in making investments in the building blocks of innovation: robust research, a talented technical workforce, and effective public-private partnerships to cultivate the inventors, innovators, and entrepreneurs of the future. Join Dahlia Sokolov and CAP experts Jonathan Moreno, David Bergeron, and Sean Pool for the May Business Alliance roundtable. This off-the-record conversation will focus on the development and integration of science and education to help the United States remain an innovation leader. We would like to hear from the business community on your efforts, challenges, and successes.

Please join us for a Business Alliance discussion with:


Dahlia Sokolov, Democratic Staff Director, Research Subcommittee of the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology

and


Jonathan D. Moreno, Senior Fellow, Science Progress, Center for American Progress
David A. Bergeron, Vice President for Postsecondary Education, Center for American Progress
