The Bay Area is a global leader in innovation, science and technology. BASIC tells this important story.
Led by the region’s major research universities, national laboratories, research and development businesses and independent institutions, BASIC presents the region’s unparalleled R&D infrastructure, its unique culture and the entrepreneurial spirit of its people.
This site is also a call to action. BASIC will stimulate science and technology discussions leading to coordinated regional action to address issues promoting or obstructing the Bay Area’s global innovation leadership.
