The U.S. rose as an economic power on the strength of its innovation system: We pursued advanced scientific research, turned those discoveries into breakthrough innovations and manufactured them for markets around the world. To restore American jobs today, industry, universities and government must come together to reinvent and reinvest in key components of our innovation system, says Hockfield. She will discuss a range of priorities, from fostering research at the intersection of the life sciences and engineering to seizing the opportunities of advanced manufacturing.
