The CHIPS and Science Act: What’s in it for the Chemistry Enterprise?

Watch On Demand


On-demand virtual event



In 2022, the U.S. Congress passed major bipartisan legislation called the CHIPS and Science Act, with the goal of reshaping U.S. research, innovation, and economic growth across all sectors to better compete globally. There has been plenty of coverage concerning the bill’s support for semiconductor research and manufacturing, but major parts of the bill include exciting provisions for the chemistry enterprise.

Join Principal Innovator Nitin Shah of MITRE Engenuity and our ACS Government Affairs staff as they provide a comprehensive overview of the scientific and technological challenges envisioned by the bill’s champions, including opportunities for growth in the chemical enterprise, insights into future funding directions of U.S. funding agencies, and an understanding of the global response to this dramatic change in United States policy. This legislation will have a major impact on science and manufacturing over the next decade, so whether you are a researcher, scientist, student, industry professional or anyone connected to the chemical enterprise, register now to understand the intricate relationship between policy, funding, and research!

This ACS Webinar is moderated by Heath Weems, Advocacy Manager at the American Chemical Society and is co-produced with ACS Advocacy and ACS Government Affairs.
