Critical Technology Assessment for biopharmaceuticals

1 November 2023


In October 2023, Marta Wosinska and Rena Conti concluded a one-year pilot demonstration of how analytics can inform national technology strategy in biopharmaceuticals. Their demonstration was part of a large, cross-industry pilot titled the National Network for Critical Technology Assessment. Funded by the National Science Foundation's Technology Innovation and Partnerships (TIP) Directorate under the CHIPS Act, this pilot set out to identify and evaluate societal, national, and geostrategic challenges facing the United States and investments in key technologies that could help address those challenges.
