The panel will explore one of the key challenges facing our government – building a foundation to get the U.S. innovation economy back on track. The key to reinvigorating our competitiveness is smart technology and innovation. Billions of dollars have been set aside by the government to promote and fund such innovation, particularly in the alternative energy and clean technology sectors. Our panel of distinguished speakers will discuss not only how these funds can be used to achieve the best results, but also the importance of other steps, including education to jumpstart American innovation and the economy.
