Silicon Crossroads - Tech Hubs

Onshoring to address critical chips needs, ensuring United States manufacturing and military strength, and maintaining our nation’s position as the strongest economy in the world started the ball rolling.  Because of the diligent efforts of  federal legislators, including a very determined Senator Todd Young, the CHIPS and Sciences Act was passed.

Our Hoosier industry, education, and elected leaders took it from there.  Indiana has secured designations for microelectronics, biotech, and hydrogen production and fueling.  Each designation provides significant funding and opportunity and will certainly be transformative for Indiana, high-tech industries, and education along with the construction industry.

You’ll be introduced to Indiana Applied Research Institute as the organization driving these opportunities.  Upland Science & Technology Foundation will give a deeper dive into the planning, economic development, and construction these efforts could yield.

This event will be held Thursday, March 14 at Indiana Landmarks, 1201 Central Avenue, Indianapolis, IN 46202. Registration and networking opens at 7:30 a.m. The program will run from 8:00 – 10:00 a.m. and include time for Q & A. Don’t miss this informative session. Register Today!
