Innovation Imperative Releases Status Report on Congressional Support for Innovation

Jun 15, 2018

As the U.S.’s global R&D leadership continues to be called into question, Innovation Imperative, a group of nine of America’s largest corporations have come together to issue a call to action for Congress. “Innovation: An American Imperative” beseeches Congress to “enact policies and make investments to ensure that the United States remains the global innovation leader.”

Innovation Imperative recently released a progress report on their efforts. Included in the report is an overall status update on federal support of U.S. innovation in 2018. Under this topic, the report also examines the status of more specific initiatives such as the need to stimulate further improvements in advanced manufacturing, achievement in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), and streamlining or eliminating costly and inefficient regulations.
