President Mung Chiang, on behalf of Purdue University, and Senator Todd Young invite you to participate in a daylong summit focused on the future of U.S. competitiveness in microelectronics and the semiconductor workforce, to be held on April 18, 2023.

The theme of this policy and strategy summit is “Executing for Success” focusing specifically on the CHIPS Act workforce development and R&D programs. Over the past year, many workshops, meetings, and reports have helped shape a vision that CHIPS Program office recently published for the semiconductor incentives and another one that the CHIPS Research and Development Office will soon publish. In this summit, the conversation will shift from defining the vision to executing the vision. Participants from government, industry, and academia will share their perspectives on the challenges ahead, ways to measure our progress, and to sustain the effort over the long term.

This event will take place at the Russell Senate Office Building in Washington, DC.
