Technology Policy Update: Implications for IEEE Members, Academics, Technologists, Innovators, Researchers and Entrepreneurs

Share

The policy discussion around themes of great importance for IEEE - such as immigration, funding of R&D, patent legislation, entrepreneurship - is of particular relevance in DC after the largest number of first-time congress women and congress men in the history of the US have taken office. IEEE has an opportunity to continue the dialogue, and educate many of these new members of congress on the issues we care about. This talk will provide an update on recent proposed legislation and other activities on the Hill that could impact technology, IEEE and broadly the ecosystem.
