January 11, 2023 • 10:30 – 11:30 am EST

Please join the Renewing American Innovation Project at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) for a discussion of Chris Miller's new book Chip War: The Fight for the World's Most Critical Technology. CSIS Senior Adviser, Charles Wessner, will be joined by Chris Miller to discuss the decades-long battle to control what has emerged as the world's most critical resource- microchip technology -with the United States and China increasingly in conflict. 
Chris Miller is Associate Professor of International History at The Fletcher School at Tufts University. He also serves as Jeane Kirkpatrick Visiting Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, Eurasia Director at the Foreign Policy Research Institute, and as Director at Greenmantle, a New York and London-based macroeconomic and geopolitical consultancy. He received a PhD in history from Yale University and a BA in history from Harvard University. 

Charles Wessner is an adjunct professor at Georgetown University, where he teaches global innovation policy while also serving as a senior adviser (non-resident) to the CSIS Renewing American Innovation Program. He served for two decades as a National Academies scholar, where he founded and directed the National Academy of Sciences' Technology, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship Program. At the National Academies, Dr. Wessner’s research addressed the importance of semiconductor research and production to innovation and national security. He is a leading U.S. expert on Sematech, the U.S. semiconductor consortium, and the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program, which provides awards to promising small businesses and start-ups. 

Chris Miller's Chip War shows that, to make sense of the current state of politics, economics, and technology, we must first understand the vital role played by chips.
This event was made possible through general support to CSIS.
