Nascent government procurement levers have already demonstrated world-changing potential, from the advanced market commitments in Operation Warp Speed to the milestone-based partnership between NASA and SpaceX. A renewed commitment to innovation will require not only investments in emerging technologies, but experimentation with new ways of solving problems. In this session, our group of government and academic experts will focus on innovative procurement mechanisms to solve one of the most pressing problems of our time: market failures for climate solutions.

About The Fall Virtual Lunch Series on Industrial Policy
The Day One Project is hosting three one-hour roundtables for a Fall Virtual Lunch Series on Industrial Policy. During these roundtables, held from September to November, key government and industry leaders will speak about opportunities to address key national challenges through tools of “industrial policy.” As a platform for new science and technology ideas, the Day One Project seeks to use these events to engage policymakers directly on novel solutions to these challenges.
