The Center for Innovation Policy at Duke Law's next "Conversations on Innovation: New Thinking and New Approaches" will examine the ramifications of the U.S. Innovation and Competition Act (approved by the Senate and pending in the House) and the larger innovation and competition issues surrounding it. How will we know if the Act is achieving its goals? What else will need to be done to ensure the future competitiveness of the American economy. The program features Dr. Ronnie Chatterji, Chief Economist at the U.S. Department of Commerce, and Kei Koizumi, Chief of Staff at the Office of Science and Technology Policy in the Executive Office of the President, in conversation with Prof. Stuart Benjamin, Faculty Co-Director of the Center.
