The Evolving Role of Universities in the American Innovation System | Panel 4

There is great interest across government, industry, and academia in improving the U.S. innovation system, particularly in light of competitive threats from countries like China. American universities have long been a foundation of U.S. leadership in science, technology, and innovation. As with other U.S. innovation institutions, however, universities face complex challenges. This conference aims to outline a new framework for America’s universities in the context of the country’s long-term competitive future.
