Success in the global economy of tomorrow requires robust forethought and action from leaders today.

The Council on Competitiveness unites leaders from across the innovation ecosystem — academia, business, labor, and the national labs — to deliberate and champion a nonpartisan action agenda that enables the U.S. to achieve three crucial goals:
  1. Lead the global economy of the future
  2. Strengthen America’s innovation infrastructure
  3. Raise the standard of living for all Americans


To achieve these policy goals, we focus on these three areas:


The creation of new value in society, which stems from a dynamic, non-linear interaction of imagination, insight, ingenuity, invention, and impact.


The capacity for complex systems to survive, adapt, evolve, and grow in the face of turbulent change.


A commitment to improving the total environment through the nation’s approach to its investments in talent, technology, and infrastructure.
