Wyden joins Congressional innovation briefing

Nov. 25, 2002 — U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) has agreed serve as co-chairman of a monthly briefing on cutting-edge science and innovation policy issues for Congress members and their staff.

Wyden, who succeeds Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-W. Va.), joins U.S. Sen. Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) to lead the Congressional Forum on Technology and Innovation, according to a news release. The Tech Forum is an initiative of the Council on Competitiveness, a nonpartisan, nonprofit group of chief executives, university presidents and labor leaders.

Wyden introduced a bill in September to create a permanent federal agency to support nanotech research, development and education in the government, industry and academia.
