Wednesday, June 14, 2023 – Unpacking the CHIPS and Science Act

The CHIPS and Science Act provides $280 billion in funding for domestic research and manufacturing of semiconductors — key components of consumer electronics, military systems and countless other applications. Amid complex supply chain constraints and an increasingly hostile technological race with China, will this ambitious legislation prove successful?

Panelists for the June 14 preview event:

  • Martijn Rasser, Managing Director, Datenna
  • Jacob Feldgoise, Data Research Analyst, Center for Security and Emerging Technology, Georgetown University
  • Hannah Kelley, Research Assistant, Technology and National Security Program at the Center for a New American Security
  • Drew Clark (moderator), Editor and Publisher, Broadband Breakfast

This Broadband Breakfast Live Online session will preview the upcoming Made in America Summit, taking place on Tuesday, June 27 in Washington.
