Join local experts as they discuss revitalizing American industry on April 24

The Fort Pitt Bridge leads into Downtown Pittsburgh

On April 24, a Brookings Institution event will explore issues of revitalizing advanced American industries — like semiconductors, biomanufacturing and clean power generation — in the context of the 2024 election, including its implications for the future growth of industry in Southwestern Pennsylvania and beyond.

The event, co-hosted by the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University, will invite state and local officials, national thought leaders and regional experts to discuss the growth in these fields, which has been aided in part by new federal investment programs. Panels will also examine how to support that growth at the federal, state and local level as well as how 2024 voter choices could impact economic opportunity in the region.

Registration is open for in-person attendees. The event will begin with a light breakfast at 8 a.m. at Carnegie Mellon’s Tepper School of Business, 4765 Forbes Ave., Pittsburgh, PA, 15213. The event will also be livestreamed beginning at 8:50 a.m. April 24.

This event is a part of Election ’24: Issues at Stake, a Brookings initiative that aims to bring public attention to consequential policy issues confronting voters and policymakers in the run up to the 2024 election. This includes equipping leaders with insights and policy ideas to help them govern in 2025 and beyond.
