TechNet Calls on United States to Intensify Innovation Priorities

Technet: In the News: "TechNet today warned U.S. policy leaders that profound changes in the global economy put America's competitiveness at risk. In the face of this challenge, the bipartisan network of technology CEOs unveiled an Innovation Policy Agenda designed to maintain U.S. global leadership through policies that encourage entrepreneurship, job creation and economic growth by strengthening innovation."

"Across the country, the academics, industry leaders and policymakers involved in the Innovation Summits collectively found that:
* The U.S. education system is not preparing young Americans for the careers of the future
* The United States is no longer assured of attracting and retaining the world's best innovators
* Global innovation leadership requires a long-term, strategic approach to create an ecosystem that fosters innovation
* We are gravely under-investing in research and development as a nation
* The U.S. lags behind other nations in the deployment of broadband networks that are the foundation of the next wave of technology innovation."
