The Data Effect: Facing America's Technology Gap

July 15, 2021

How Silicon Valley Can Keep America And Its Allies Competitive In Essential Technologies.

As the United States moves to secure the technological frontier, one of the country’s strategic imperatives must be to revamp its manufacturing and supply chain infrastructure.

The developing crisis in microchip manufacturing now impacting the U.S. economy has been exacerbated by pandemic related supply issues. The underlying challenge, however, is the lack of continental resources and production strategies to secure future demand.

CityAge - in collaboration with San Jose State University - brought together the leaders who are taking action to solve these problems. This  digital event  looked at concrete actions to rebuild American R&D and manufacturing and protect and revitalize the nation’s supply chains.

We looked at how policymakers, such as Rep. Ro Khanna, are spearheading legislative efforts to increase federal investments in innovative science and research, and how Silicon Valley’s universities and companies can keep America and its allies in the lead of advancing microchips and other essential technologies.
