US science policy in 2020: a “second bold era of American science and technology” or “second place America”?

Presented by ANU College of Science

2019 was the year when the United States realised that it may not always lead the world in science and technology. Debates about the implications of the rise of China have been accompanied by debates about the direction of American innovation and a rising “techlash” at home that is featuring more and more in the presidential campaign for 2020.

In this seminar, Paul Harris, Director of the ANU North American Liaison Office in Washington DC, will examine the drivers for change in American S&T policy, and where they might lead.
