The Trump Administration and the Republican-led 115th Congress will enter the first one hundred days embroiled in a heated debate about cybersecurity. But, beyond this issue, there are few signals to suggest what technology policy priorities will be acted on, when and how. From re-litigating contentious issues of net neutrality or data protection to codifying the regulatory landscape for frontier technologies like autonomous vehicles and drones, 2017 has the potential to be YUGE.

Please join Lincoln Network, in partnership with CALinnovates and 1776, as we host top influencers representing the Trump Administration, Congress and the innovation economy who will provide insights regarding what to expect in the coming months.

Lincoln Research

Lincoln Network recently released preliminary results from a Entrepreneur Survey on Government Regulation, to coincide with the pledge by President-elect Trump to enact significant regulatory changes within the first one hundred days of his administration. The initial findings offer a framework for regulations that entrepreneurs see as innovation-enhancing or innovation-restricting. Specifically, the evidence emerged in three general patterns about optimal regulations that:

  1. Permits informed user consent of risky technologies
  2. Reduces a hawkish approach to resolving legal disputes and security issues
  3. Incentivizes performance based organization
