Adapting to the 21st Century Innovation Environment


Project Scope:

An ad hoc committee will organize a public workshop to consider the characteristics of the 21st century innovation environment compared to the conditions supporting innovation in the mid-to-late 20th century. It will explore how industry, government, and universities have adapted to the accelerated pace of innovation in the current open information age, and will discuss how partnerships between the three sectors play an increasingly critical role in advancing technology development and commercialization in the current innovation environment. The workshop will also consider how an investigation of the 21st century innovation environment can inform policymaking to strengthen U.S. competiveness as a leader in science and technology in the global economy. A brief rapporteur-authored workshop summary will be published.
