The Bridge that Bipartisanship Built: Challenges to our nation’s technology transfer system.

January 22 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

More than 30 years ago, Congress, with broad bipartisan support, created a new “tech transfer” system that led to an explosion in U.S.-driven scientific, technological, and medical breakthroughs.  A proposed Commerce Department rule, while well-intentioned, risks the technology transfer bridge between public, academic, and private sector R&D at the expense of progress crucial to U.S. and global health, security, and prosperity.

Dr. John Hamre, former U.S. Deputy Secretary of Defense and President and CEO at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, and Capitol Hill veteran and health policy expert Paul Kim joined us for a conversation about U.S. technology transfer, the Commerce Department proposal, and how research advocates can weigh in.
