Goals The Summit will bring together 300 C-suite leaders from industry, academia and the public sector from across the Western Hemisphere’s two largest economies to:  Highlight and strengthen the concrete partnerships that have emerged from the 1st U.S.-Brazil Innovation Summit in 2007 and ten U.S.-Brazil Innovation Learning Laboratories held in both nations in 2008 and 2009.  Launch a strategic, innovation-centric, economic development dialogue for leaders in both nations that can serve as a model for the Western Hemisphere and around the world.  Focus a distinctive network of leaders on creating new, bi-national partnerships to address the grand challenges and opportunities of the 21st century. The Summit agenda will center on:  Meeting global demand for energy, which will increase by nearly 50 percent in 20 years, while balancing the need for sustainable growth and use of other critical resources, like water;  Supporting the bioscience spectrum—from agriculture to biofuels to health care—in a world that will need a doubling of food production in 50 years;  Building smart infrastructure—from transportation and logistics networks to broadband to the “cloud”— and the range of policies necessary to support innovation;  Cultivating smart places—creating regions of innovation in a world in which, by 2050, more than two- thirds of the population will live in cities; and  Fostering the platform for the most innovative mix of manufacturing and services that will create the most value for society—the new firms, industries and jobs that will define prosperity in the decades to 2ª CONFERÊNCIA DE INOVAÇÃO BRASIL- EUA  come. 2010 US-BRAZIL INNOVATION SUMMIT Restrict / Preliminary Version
