Economics for Whole of Nation Challenges” Conference


MITRE Corporation is calling for participants for its “Harnessing the Power of Economics to Solve Whole of Nation Challenges” conference on Wednesday, September 6, 2023. With keynote speaker Dr. Emily Blanchard, Chief Economist, U.S. Department of State, the conference will be held at its co-headquarters locations in McLean, Virginia and Bedford, Massachusetts, as well as via Teams Meeting.

This conference will join MITRE economists with speakers and panelists from government, academia, and industry to examine the role of economics in collaboratively solving whole-of-nation challenges. A Whole of Nation challenge is one in which maximum U.S. societal benefits can only be achieved through partnership across applicable agencies at the federal, state, tribal, territorial, and/or local government levels and/or with academia and/or industry engagement. MITRE seeks to serve as a catalyst to foster collaborative cross-sector research, drive innovation, and inform decision-makers.

Topics include climate, transportation, supply chain, public health, digital currency, and the economics of AI.

MITRE is currently soliciting submissions of abstracts for poster displays of relevant research. MITRE wants to feature a diverse selection of work from MITRE, government, academia, and industry, where economic thought or methods were, or could potentially be applied to problems of national interest. To submit an abstract by August 4, 2023, please click here.

MITRE will provide free lobby space for vendor tables. Government agencies or offices, academic institutions or departments, associated research centers, and industry companies or organizations are welcome to inquire. To apply to reserve a table by August 18, 2023, please click here.
