Historically, the US federal government has guided policy with regard to science, technology and innovation in the United States.  During World War II, federal investment in research and development resulted in the US becoming a world leader politically, economically, and socially.  Over sixty years later, science and technology have pervaded all aspects of our lives, requiring policymakers to balance investment and regulation in order to stimulate economic growth while also protecting their citizens.  This 90-minute workshop will include:

- a discussion of how US science policy is unfolding today; and
- a brief comparison of US and EU policy approaches to science, technology and innovation
