In-person registration for this event has closed. If you have not already registered for in-person attendance, please watch virtually from this page.
On August 9th, 2022, President Biden signed the CHIPS and Science Act into law, providing nearly $280 billion in new funding to boost domestic research and manufacturing of semiconductors. The Act represents a major initiative to build a more resilient innovation and manufacturing ecosystem and occurs against the backdrop of a growing competition between the United States and China.
To better understand how the CHIPS and Science Act can promote regional economic growth and innovation, the Renewing American Innovation Project invites you to an all-day conference on ‘Enhancing the Regional Impact of the CHIPS and Science Act' cohosted by the Indiana University Public Policy Institute.
For this event, CSIS will bring together policymakers, senior industry leaders, agency leaders, and policy experts in a series of panels discussing how the United States can maximize and sustain the regional economic impact of the CHIPS and Science Act.
This event will take place at CSIS Headquarters at 1616 Rhode Island Avenue NW, Washington DC and will be webcast live from this page.
Due to space restrictions, RSVPs are required in advance for this event and will be re-confirmed via email from Renewing American Innovation. Credentialed members of the media will receive instructions as part of a separate confirmation issued by the Office of External Relations. Your event registration is not transferrable and valid proof of ID will be required at check-in.
This event is made possible through general support to CSIS.
