The Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research (SIEPR) will hold an all-day forum Friday, June 1, to discuss innovation policy for the next U.S. president.
The institute holds a biannual policy forum, launched in 2006, that seeks to expose students to in-depth analysis of leading economic issues. It also allows the institute to foster connections with experts and policy specialists across campus, and to provide a venue for faculty and students conducting independent research to exchange ideas.
The event will take place in the Vidalakis Room of the Schwab Center at 650 Serra St. It is free and open to the campus community, but participants should register in advance by contacting Ellen Moore at (650) 724-9278 or email@example.com. Stanford IDs must be presented at the door.Program
