As global competition in science and technology continues to challenge American leadership in research and development, Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy will host “A Bold New Era of American Science and Technology” Nov. 12, featuring remarks by Kelvin Droegemeier, director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy and science adviser to President Donald Trump.
The event will take place in Baker Hall’s Doré Commons on the Rice campus. A reception will be held at 5:30 p.m., followed by Droegemeier’s presentation at 6:30.
Droegemeier will discuss recent advances in science and technology and his plans to promote coordination and collaboration between the government, industry and academia.
