Briefing: Why America Needs the Revitalize American Manufacturing and Innovation Act (RAMI) - H.R. 2996
ITIF will host a briefing on H.R. 2996 - The Revitalize American Manufacturing and Innovation (RAMI) Act at the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday, April 29, 2014. The RAMI legislation supports public-private partnerships between the federal government, local governments, universities, research institutes, and industry to accelerate manufacturing innovation in technologies with commercial applications by leveraging resources to bridge the gap between basic research performed at U.S. universities and research laboratories and product development by U.S. manufacturers.
Post-World War II era U.S. science, technology, and innovation policy has been defined by a linear approach to public investment in basic research. For many decades, this worked because the United States was one of the few countries with the technological capabilities to translate research into new products and services. But in today’s intensely competitive global economy where nations are fiercely competing for innovation advantage, this paradigm is no longer tenable.
