These investments hold vast potential for revolutionizing medical science, population health, and cost management. Yet realizing this promise requires progress on a wide range of market, regulatory and legislative obstacles, many of which are relics of a “pre-data” era. Nowhere are the potential opportunity costs greater than in genomic medicine—the mapping and sequencing of genes to discover and create individualized treatments for genetically driven diseases like cancer and diabetes.</p><p><a href="http://www.healthitnow.org/" target="_blank">Health IT Now</a> and the <a href="http://www.datainnovation.org/" target="_blank">Center for Data Innovation</a> are convening a full-day summit that will delve into the rapidly expanding market of data-driven solutions that support genomic research and applications in health care. The goal of the summit is to identify the necessary reforms—both legislative and regulatory—to promote data-driven medicine in ways that meaningfully transform care delivery, improve health outcomes and decrease health spending.</p><p>Specifically the summit will cover the following themes:</p><ul><li>The promise of genomics and an outlook into the future of data-driven medicine;</li><li>Challenges related to data sharing, interoperability and data analytics; and</li><li>The legislative and regulatory barriers against further progress in the field.</li></ul><p>Speakers to be announced soon.&nbsp;</p><div class="field field-type-computed field-field-rel-ids-issues"> <div class="field-label">Rel IDs for issues:</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 6150 </div> </div> </div> Data Innovation Thu, 11 Dec 2014 13:15:00 +0000 akey 6150 at http://www.itif.org Next-Generation R&D Partnerships: The NCATS Success Story http://www.itif.org/events/next-generation-rd-partnerships-ncats-success-story <div class="field field-type-text field-field-enablereg"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> off </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-ext-registration"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> https://www.eventbrite.com/e/next-gen-rd-partnerships-the-ncats-success-story-tickets-13315004537 </div> </div> </div> <p>A major challenge for federally funded research and technology is bridging the so-called "valley of death" - a state of development where many promising discoveries die because they are not sufficiently advanced to attract private sector partners or venture funding even though they may have tremendous potential impact. &nbsp;This problem plagues many capital-intensive technologies, such as clean energy and biotechnology.</p><p>It's particularly serious when dealing with rare or neglected diseases where developing new treatments can literally mean the difference between life and death. As a result, the National Institutes of Health established the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS), which is working to improve the process of translating scientific and clinical discoveries into interventions that improve human health. To-date, NCATS has formed high-impact R&amp;D partnerships that are revolutionizing how government agencies can remove barriers to commercialization, spur innovation, and provide greater returns to the American taxpayers from the billions of dollars invested in the federal research system.<br /><br />Please join the House Technology Transfer Caucus, the Center for Clean Energy Innovation, the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation and a panel of leading experts to discuss the NCATS technology transfer model, successful case studies, and lessons learned for other government agencies.<br /><br />The event is free, open to the public and complies with ethics rules.&nbsp;</p><div class="field field-type-computed field-field-rel-ids-issues"> <div class="field-label">Rel IDs for issues:</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 6083 </div> </div> </div> Energy & Climate Science and R&D Wed, 29 Oct 2014 14:00:00 +0000 akey 6083 at http://www.itif.org Trade Promotion Authority: Do We Need a New Approach? http://www.itif.org/events/trade-promotion-authority-do-we-need-new-approach <div class="field field-type-text field-field-enablereg"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable Registration </div> </div> </div> <p>Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), a law that allows the President to “fast-track” trade agreements for approval or disapproval by Congress by only allowing a “yes or no” vote, is a contentious issue. While it is crucial, especially given that the Obama Administration is in the middle of negotiations for two different potentially transformative trade agreements — the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (T-TIP) and the Transpacific Partnership (TPP) — it also raises questions of the appropriate delegation of Congressional authority over trade. How will this round of TPA renewal change the conversation about Trade Promotion Authority going forward? Is it time for a new approach to TPA, perhaps paired with a new approach to trade policy in the United States? Where does the TPA fit with regard to the strategic trade theory America so desperately needs but woefully lacks? And what benefits could be realized from a new approach? Join ITIF for a conversation with an expert panel about the evolution of the TPA.</p><p>This event is free, open to the public and complies with ethics rules.

The conference is hosted and sponsored by Google.&nbsp;</p><p>Europe faces two key challenges: low job growth and high unemployment on the one hand, and anaemic productivity on the other. Indeed, from the post-war period to the mid-1990s the EU was closing the productivity gap with the United States. Since 1995, that gap has widened steadily and shows no sign of narrowing. If Europe is going to catch back up it must consider the lessons from productivity growth in economies like the US: more ubiquitous adoption of information and communication technologies (ICTs) by all organisations (for profit, non-profit and government) through-out the European economy.&nbsp;</p><p>Key themes to be addressed:&nbsp;</p><p>1. <strong>Understanding the links between productivity, innovation and growth</strong><br />Why is productivity critical to the UK and Europe’s economic future? What factors account for Europe’s relatively poor productivity performance especially compared to the United States?&nbsp;</p><p>2. <strong>Tackling the disruption associated with digitalisation<br /></strong>Is there really a trade-off between high rates of productivity growth and robust job growth? What can policy do to make sure that workers benefit from ICT-led productivity growth? How can productivity growth improve living standards across the economy?</p><p>3. <strong>Towards a broader agenda for productivity?<br /></strong>Should Europe and the UK place a higher priority on growing productivity, particularly across-the-board productivity in all industries, rather than just in the ICT industry itself? What kinds of policy changes are needed?<br /><br /></p><p>For further information visit this <a href="http://www.policy-network.net/event/3979/Innovation-and-productivity-growth-in-the-UK-and-Europe-" target="_blank">page</a> or contact:</p><div class="stats_wrap" style="padding: 0px; margin: 0px 0px 20px; color: #333333; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; line-height: 18px;"><ul style="padding: 0px; margin: 0px; list-style: none;"><li id="ctl00_PageHolder_ContentHolder_Main_liContact" style="padding: 0px; margin: 0px 0px 2px;"><dl style="padding: 0px; margin: 0px;"><dd style="padding: 0px; margin: 0px; overflow: hidden;">Emma Kinloch<br />Telephone:&nbsp;<span style="font-size: 12px;">020 7340 2204<br />Email:&nbsp;</span><a id="ctl00_PageHolder_ContentHolder_Main_hplEmail" style="font-size: 12px; padding: 0px; margin: 0px; outline: none; color: #c82b1f;" href="mailto:ekinloch@policy-network.net?Subject=Innovation%20and%20productivity%20growth%20in%20the%20UK%20and%20Europe">ekinloch@policy-network.net</a></dd></dl></li><li id="ctl00_PageHolder_ContentHolder_Main_liEmail" style="padding: 0px; margin: 0px 0px 2px;"><dl style="padding: 0px; margin: 0px;"><br /><dd style="padding: 0px; margin: 0px; overflow: hidden;"><br /></dd></dl></li></ul></div><div class="field field-type-computed field-field-rel-ids-issues"> <div class="field-label">Rel IDs for issues:</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 6092 </div> </div> </div> Productivity Wed, 15 Oct 2014 12:45:00 +0000 akey 6092 at http://www.itif.org Trade Policy Manichaeism – Why the Trade Debate is Stuck and How to Move it Forward http://www.itif.org/publications/trade-policy-manichaeism-why-trade-debate-stuck-and-how-move-it-forward <div> </div> <div> We need to end unproductive arguments and focus on real reform. </div> http://www.itif.org/publications/trade-policy-manichaeism-why-trade-debate-stuck-and-how-move-it-forward#comments Trade Blogs & Op-eds Mon, 13 Oct 2014 04:00:00 +0000 akey 6130 at http://www.itif.org Healthcare Insurance Regs Must Keep Up With Tech Advances http://www.itif.org/publications/healthcare-insurance-regs-must-keep-tech-advances <div> </div> <div> Health data use is being slowed by outdated rules. </div> http://www.itif.org/publications/healthcare-insurance-regs-must-keep-tech-advances#comments Data Innovation Blogs & Op-eds Fri, 10 Oct 2014 04:00:00 +0000 akey 6131 at http://www.itif.org Should Washington Work to Slow the Loss of Manufacturing From Trade? http://www.itif.org/publications/should-washington-work-slow-loss-manufacturing-trade <div> </div> <div> The answer is a resounding yes. </div> http://www.itif.org/publications/should-washington-work-slow-loss-manufacturing-trade#comments Manufacturing Blogs & Op-eds Fri, 10 Oct 2014 04:00:00 +0000 akey 6132 at http://www.itif.org GMO Labeling is Unwarranted and Unnecessary http://www.itif.org/publications/gmo-labeling-unwarranted-and-unnecessary <div> </div> <div> Val Giddings testifies before the New Jersey State Assembly on GMO labeling. </div> http://www.itif.org/publications/gmo-labeling-unwarranted-and-unnecessary#comments Life Sciences Testimony and Filings Thu, 09 Oct 2014 04:00:00 +0000 akey 6129 at http://www.itif.org The Global Mercantilist Index: A New Approach to Ranking Nations’ Trade Policies http://www.itif.org/events/global-mercantilist-index-new-approach-ranking-nations-trade-policies <div class="field field-type-text field-field-enablereg"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable Registration </div> </div> </div> <p>Countries’ use of mercantilist economic policies has expanded dramatically, particularly in emerging economies such as Brazil, China, and India.

Understanding that we are dealing with an evolutionary rather than a static economy has significant implications for the conceptualization of both economics and economic policy.</p> <p>ITIF President Robert Atkinson will present the findings from a new report that contrasts an evolutionary economic view with conventional economics, analyzes the three main sources of U.S. economic evolutionary change, and presents eight key principles for an evolutionary economics-inspired economic policy.</p><p><strong><a href="http://www2.itif.org/2014-maximizing-evolutionary-economy.pdf" target="_blank">Read the book online</a>.</strong></p><p>The event is free, open to the public and complies with ethics rules<span style="font-family: arial; color: #7d6a55;"><span style="font-size: 12.727272033691406px; line-height: 18px;">.&nbsp;</span></span><strong>A live webcast will be available on this page. </strong>Streaming works best with Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome browsers.<strong>&nbsp;</strong>Lunch will be provided.&nbsp;</p><p><object id="da_542d655b06d50" classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" width="700" height="400" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=10,0,0,0" align="middle"><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always" /><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /><param name="wmode" value="transparent" /><param name="movie" value="http://player.viewer.dacast.com/DacastPlayerHD.swf?c=19650_20194&quot;" /><param name="quality" value="high" /><param name="bgcolor" value="#fff" /><embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="700" height="400" src="http://player.viewer.dacast.com/DacastPlayerHD.swf?c=19650_20194" align="middle" bgcolor="#fff" quality="high" allowfullscreen="true" wmode="transparent" allowscriptaccess="always"></embed></object></p><div class="field field-type-computed field-field-rel-ids-issues"> <div class="field-label">Rel IDs for issues:</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 5930 </div> </div> </div> Economic Theory Thu, 02 Oct 2014 16:00:00 +0000 akey 5930 at http://www.itif.org Understanding and Maximizing America’s Evolutionary Economy http://www.itif.org/pressrelease/understanding-and-maximizing-america-s-evolutionary-economy-0 Press Releases Competitiveness Economic Theory Thu, 02 Oct 2014 04:00:00 +0000 akey 6101 at http://www.itif.org Understanding and Maximizing America's Evolutionary Economy http://www.itif.org/publications/understanding-and-maximizing-americas-evolutionary-economy <div> </div> <div> Conventional economics provides an increasingly poor guide for economic policy and should be replaced by an evolutionary economics framework. </div> http://www.itif.org/publications/understanding-and-maximizing-americas-evolutionary-economy#comments Competitiveness Economic Theory Books Thu, 02 Oct 2014 04:00:00 +0000 akey 6100 at http://www.itif.org How Immigration Policy Has Walled Off Silicon Valley http://www.itif.org/publications/how-immigration-policy-has-walled-silicon-valley <div> </div> <div> Restrictive immigration policies are holding Silicon Valley back. </div> http://www.itif.org/publications/how-immigration-policy-has-walled-silicon-valley#comments Competitiveness Manufacturing Blogs & Op-eds Wed, 01 Oct 2014 04:00:00 +0000 akey 6098 at http://www.itif.org Modi's U.S. Visit a Prime Opportunity For A Relationship Reset http://www.itif.org/publications/modis-us-visit-prime-opportunity-relationship-reset <div> </div> <div> While there are positive signs works still needs to be done to improve U.S.-India relations. </div> http://www.itif.org/publications/modis-us-visit-prime-opportunity-relationship-reset#comments Trade Blogs & Op-eds Tue, 30 Sep 2014 04:00:00 +0000 akey 6096 at http://www.itif.org A New Approach to Ranking Nations’ Trade Policies http://www.itif.org/pressrelease/new-approach-ranking-nations-trade-policies Press Releases Trade Mon, 29 Sep 2014 04:00:00 +0000 akey 6090 at http://www.itif.org Spoiler Alert!
