THE BOSTON TECH HUB FACULTY WORKING GROUP
This event is hosted by the Boston Tech Hub Faculty Working Group, which was founded by former Secretary of Defense and Belfer Center Director Ash Carter and Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences Dean Frank Doyle.
From February to May 2023, the group held monthly discussion-based meetings with senior faculty across Harvard and MIT and practitioners/decision makers across the public and private sectors that sought to explore and answer the questions: “How do we execute on the promise of the CHIPS and Science Act in an effective way?” and “Where do we go from here?”
