TECHNOLOGY POLICY INSTITUTE ASPEN FORUM

 

 

Webcasts Now Available

 

The TPI Aspen Forum will bring together leaders from business, government, and academia in a relaxed, informal setting to discuss and debate the key public policy issues surrounding information and communications technology.  This year’s theme, “Innovation and Critical Policy Choices: Is the United States Losing its Edge?” will guide the keynote speeches, workshops and panels on a variety of topics.

 

Innovation and technological change are crucial to the nation's long-run economic health and ability to improve standards of living, as well as to our ability to address national challenges in energy, the environment, health care and other priority areas. The United States has long been a leader in innovation, but there is growing concern that the U.S. is losing its edge. Discussions at TPI’s Aspen Forum will explore the state of innovation in the U.S. and how public policy concerning such topics as broadband, competition, intellectual property and data security can create a favorable environment conducive to innovation and entrepreneurship.

 

Details on the agenda and speakers will be announced soon.  For additional information, contact Jane Creel at jcreel@techpolicyinstitute.org.  Members of the press can contact Amy Smorodin at asmorodin@techpolicyinstitute.org.
