BRIE is an interdisciplinary research project that focuses on the interactions of international economic competition and the development and application of advanced technologies. Founded by a group of faculty at the University of California, Berkeley, the roundtable became one of the earliest intellectual voices debating government policy and business strategy in America. BRIE's research concentrates on the different ways industrialized economies create competitive advantage and how these differences affect international economic and political relations. The roundtable simultaneously seeks to understand how America can sustain its own economic development and maintain leadership. Bringing together UC faculty, business leaders and scholars from around the world, BRIE continues to develop new approaches to understanding the rapidly changing global economy.
