Monday, November 14, 2016 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Technology Square Research Building – Bldg#175


Technological innovation has long been and will continue to be critically important to both income growth and national competitiveness. So it is important that we examine President-elect Donald Trump’s policy agenda through that lens. This report is based on information gathered directly from the president-elect’s campaign websites and policy documents, and from media accounts of statements he has made. The report begins with an overview of the general philosophy the president-elect has articulated on technology, innovation, and trade policy, then examines his policy positions across eight specific issue areas: 

Innovation and R&D 
Education and Skills 
Taxes and Budget 
Trade Regulation 
Broadband and Telecommunications  
Internet and Digital Economy 
 Life Sciences and Biotechnology
