An American Innovation Agenda for 2020
Business Roundtable CEOs have put forward a cross-cutting policy agenda to secure U.S. leadership in innovation, maintain a robust U.S. economy and increase living standards for all Americans through 2020 and beyond.
Leadership in innovation is one of the most important factors for the future of the United States. Through innovation, we can continue to achieve sustainable, long-term economic growth that increases prosperity and leads to a higher standard of living for all Americans. While America remains the global leader in innovation, there are legitimate concerns that we are losing ground as other countries acquire market access and pour massive resources into research and development, advanced infrastructure and education.
As America’s public policy priorities, demographics and economy continue to evolve, it is more important than ever to establish a national innovation agenda championed by leaders of our government, business community, academic institutions and civil society.
That’s why Business Roundtable has developed a national innovation policy agenda. Drawing from ideas discussed during our CEO Innovation Summit last December, “Innovation Nation: An American Innovation Agenda for 2020” is a cross-cutting agenda comprised of policy recommendations to secure U.S. leadership in innovation and position American workers for success in a future economy.
