QSI Sponsors Meeting with Under Secretary Robert Cresanti
Nearly 200 people joined OCTANe to host the Under Secretary of Commerce for Technology Robert Cresanti last week at UC Irvine’s Calit2 auditorium. This was Mr. Cresanti’s first trip to California as Under Secretary, and he discussed national technology trends including nanotechnology and renewable energy and the Administration’s strategy, outlined and aided by the President’s American Competitiveness Initiative. The Initiative is designed to promote U.S. innovation and competitiveness within the context of expanded globalization. The trip continued the dialogue on issues explored at the National Summit on Competitiveness, which the U.S. Department of Commerce hosted in December 2005.
