USIBC HOSTS INTERACTIVE DISCUSSION WITH NIST DIRECTOR DR. WALTER COPAN

Wednesday, February 20, 2019 - Wednesday, February 20, 2019
3:30 pm - 5:00 pm New Delhi, India

NIST is one of the nation’s oldest physical science laboratories. Congress established the agency to remove a major challenge to U.S. industrial competitiveness at the time—a second-rate measurement infrastructure that lagged behind the capabilities of the United Kingdom, Germany, and other economic rivals. From the smart electric power grid and electronic health records to atomic clocks, advanced nanomaterials, and computer chips, innumerable products and services rely in some way on technology, measurement, and standards provided by the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

Dr. Copan and his team seek inputs and insights into U.S. business in India to better understand the country’s high technology, digital economy landscape, and trajectory, including technology policies impacting U.S. competitiveness such as localized testing, cybersecurity standards and regulations, privacy, 5G, etc.  Other topics of interest relating to science and technology include renewal technology, medical devises, and other advanced technology.
