GovExec Daily: Efforts to Advance and Invest in Research

Wellspring CEO Robert Lowe joins the podcast to discuss how the U.S. invests in innovation.

Last month, the Senate passed a $250 billion bipartisan tech and manufacturing bill aimed at countering China. The U.S. Innovation and Competition Act is not only one of the largest industrial bills in U.S. history, but it could be also be one of the last major bipartisan bills of 2021.

While this amount of investment may be impressive, serious questions are being raised about whether America has the infrastructure in place to drive tangible results and if much of the investment will just be wasted. Robert Lowe is the CEO of Wellspring and he joined the podcast to discuss why this investment is much needed and what steps can be taken to avoid it becoming an albatross.
