US Innovation and Research Efforts

Roundtable discussion and press conference on U.S. innovation and research efforts

Princeton University
Monday, December 15 at 10 a.m

Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Rep. Rush Holt (NJ-12), and other Congressional leaders will join Princeton University President Shirley M. Tilghman and national leaders in the science and technology community for a roundtable discussion on how to strengthen the national commitment to physical sciences and energy research.

The roundtable continues the Democratic Innovation Agenda's commitment to U.S. competitiveness by providing an opportunity for members of Congress to discuss with industry leaders, university presidents, federal government officials, and research scientists the necessary steps for maintaining U.S. scientific leadership. These discussions are critical given increased international competition, and will help restore our obligation to build our nation's research infrastructure to nurture the new ideas necessary for innovation and economic growth.

Speaker Pelosi, Rep. Holt, the members of Congress, President Tilghman, and other participants will hold a press conference at the conclusion of the roundtable. There will also be a brief photo spray at the end of the roundtable.
