Special Event: Crafting a U.S. National Technology Strategy

Mar 16, 2021
1:00pm to 2:15pm


The United States faces a challenge like no other in its history: a strategic competition with a highly capable and increasingly resourceful opponent whose worldview and economic and political models are at odds with the interests and values of the world’s democratic states. A rising China poses a fundamental challenge to the economic vitality and national security of the United States and its allies and the currency of liberal democratic values around the world. Technology—a key enabler for economic, political, and military power—is front and center in this competition. To compete with China, the United States must develop an intellectual framework that can serve as a roadmap for successful, long-term American innovation and technological leadership.

On March 16, 2021, the Center for a New American Security (CNAS) convened a virtual event on crafting a U.S. national technology strategy.
