Event - The Innovation Consensus: Economic Growth in 2013 and Beyond

Event - The Innovation Consensus: Economic Growth in 2013 and Beyond
April 19th Event hosted by TPI, ITIF and Silicon Flatirons

The Technology Policy Institute, the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation, and Silicon Flatirons are pleased to host "The Innovation Consensus: Economic Growth in 2013 and Beyond."

 

America cannot grow and create jobs without innovation, and America cannot solve its fiscal challenges without growth. Yet America's innovation potential, and the global competitiveness that it must fuel, is being challenged by trends both domestic and foreign. Despite its importance, the issue is getting relatively little attention. The half-day conference will explore issues surrounding America’s innovation and competitiveness challenge.  Participants will discuss how to move the issue to the front and center of our political system with support from both sides of the aisle.

 

"The Innovation Consensus: Economic Growth in 2013 and Beyond" will be held April 19th, 8:30am to 1:30pm at the Kaiser Family Foundation, 1330 G Street, NW in Washington, DC. A preliminary agenda can be found here.  Registration can be performed at the ITIF website and questions should be directed to Kathryn Angstadt at kangstadt@itif.org or 202-449-1351. Members of the press can contact Amy Smorodin at asmorodin@techpolicyinstitute.org.
