Ensuring Long-Term U.S. Leadership in Semiconductors

January 12, 2017 • 9:30 – 10:30 am EST

Join CSIS for a discussion on the latest President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) report, Ensuring Long-Term U.S. Leadership in Semiconductors. The United States has been the historic leader in semiconductor technology, which underpin the modern devices and services that are key drivers of economic growth and central to national security. However, the market is transitioning away from U.S.-led innovation as China and other nations heavily subsidize their domestic industries to compete with U.S. companies, often in violation of international standards and agreements. Panelists will discuss the impact of national industrial policies on the market, and how U.S. policy might adapt to foster innovation, mitigate security risks, and level the playing field for economic competition.
