The U.S. economy faces an inflection point. Multiple technology revolutions are unfolding and converging at a rapid pace, and the nation’s ability to swiftly reorganize its economy to capitalize on this creative destruction will dictate whether the United States remains the world’s leader in innovation for generations to come. Recent events—including the pandemic, the war in Ukraine, the ongoing effects of climate change, and supply chain disruptions, among many others—have only hastened the pace of change and heightened the importance of rising to the occasion to produce concrete recommendations and action steps for the private and public sectors.
With those considerations in mind, the National Commission on Innovation and Competitiveness Frontiers (the Commission) is launching the next phase of its work to re-envision the U.S. innovation ecosystem, and dramatically increase the nation’s innovation capacity and capabilities. Over the course of the coming months, the Commission will initiate a new wave of dialogues that will build on prior work, dive deeper into critical topics, and refresh collective thinking on how the United States can out-innovate and out-compete other nations in the 21st century.
