ITIF is celebrating its 5th anniversary this year. Whatever contributions ITIF has made in enhancing public awareness of innovation’s central role in our economic health and in shaping public policies to improve U.S. capacity to innovate and compete, we have just begun. Whether the U.S. can marshal its formidable resources and talent to prevail in today’s innovation-driven and competitive world remains an open question. ITIF will explore this question in a high-level policy forum on June 23.

Dr. John Lechleiter, President and CEO of Eli Lilly and Company, will offer keynote remarks on the urgency of closing America’s innovation deficit. Following his remarks, distinguished public and private sector leaders will discuss what the U.S. has done right or wrong in the last five years on innovation policy and what innovation policy should look like in 2016 (when ITIF marks its 10th anniversary) for the U.S. to meet the challenges it faces. Don’t miss this important and thought-provoking discussion.
