American universities play an important role in spurring technological innovation, job creation and U.S. economic competitiveness. But they can do more, especially if the federal government makes a more concerted effort to help universities commercialize and transfer new technologies. In this event, ITIF hosts a panel on this issue, including the presentation of a policy proposal by Krisztina Holly, Vice Provost for Innovation at USC.
