The US is in a period of economic recovery, and "innovation" is one of the most talked-about solutions. Universities are the country’s innovation engines, generating thousands of inventions and technologies each year. The often-missing piece is a pathway--including access to resources and funding--to commercialize these innovations and launch competitive companies.

In this address, Dr. Kristina Johnson, former undersecretary of Energy in the Obama Administration, will provide a wide-ranging perspective on how economic recovery is being shaped. She will examine the government’s emerging plans and initiatives around funding and promoting innovation, and the impact that these activities will have on research, innovation and entrepreneurship at universities. What are the key growth areas the government is targeting for increased funding and support? How are faculty and students contributing to this call for action? How might they get access to resources that will advance their research, innovation and venture development?
