Investing in Science and Technology for the Future of U.S. Global Competitiveness

Event Overview

Confronted by a global health crisis, greater R&D competition from around the globe, and the growing frequency of natural disasters, the need for science and technology solutions has never been more critical.

Despite overwhelming bipartisan demands for investment in science and technology and strengthening the STEM workforce, Congressional action has yet to meet the moment and keep the U.S. globally competitive. Join the Science & Technology Action Committee and CQ Roll Call to discuss:

        • How to secure the future of U.S. competitiveness
        • Why government investments are needed to unleash scientific innovation
        • Importance of the Bipartisan Innovation Act
