Incentivizing Innovation for National Security
Please join CSIS on Monday, December 4th at 9:00am for a discussion with Rep. Deborah Ross (D-NC) to examine the role of intellectual property (IP) in innovation and geopolitical competition.
The United States’ economic and national security rests on technological innovation, which is upheld by a system of secure intellectual property rights. Yet, the U.S. has not updated this system for the modern age of intense global technological competition. To cultivate an innovation ecosystem which enables the U.S. to “run faster” in this competition, Congress has proposed legislation to strengthen IP protections, thereby boosting innovation.
Following the conversation with Rep. Ross, a panel discussion with Henry Hadad, Senior Vice President and Deputy General Council at Bristol-Myers Squibb, Tom Brown, Senior Legal Director at Dell, and Doug Collins, former House Representative from Georgia and ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, will examine the policy landscape around protecting U.S. intellectual property against a backdrop of U.S. national security.
This hybrid event will be moderated by Andrei Iancu, CSIS Senior Adviser and former Director of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
This event is made possible through general support to CSIS.
