By National Research Council, Policy and Global Affairs, Technology, and Economic Policy Board on Science, Committee on Competing in the 21st Century: Best Practice in State and Regional Innovation Initiatives, Charles W. Wessner

Many of the coverage dialogue approximately stimulating innovation has involved in the federal point. This research makes a speciality of the numerous task on the kingdom point, with the target of enhancing the public's knowing of key coverage recommendations and exemplary practices. in line with a chain of workshops and meetings that introduced jointly policymakers in addition to leaders of and academia in a pick out variety of states, the learn highlights a wealthy number of coverage projects underway on the country and nearby point to foster wisdom established progress and employment. might be what distinguishes this attempt on the country point is such a lot of all of the excessive measure of pragmatism. working out of necessity, innovation rules on the country point usually contain profiting from latest assets and recombining them in new methods, forging cutting edge partnerships between universities, and executive firms, becoming the ability base, and making an investment within the infrastructure to increase new applied sciences and new industries. a lot of those tasks are being guided via leaders from the personal quarter and universities.

The target of Best Practices in nation and local Innovation projects: Competing within the twenty first Century is to not do an empirical evaluate of the inputs and outputs of assorted country courses. neither is it to guage which courses are stronger. certainly, the various impressive successes, reminiscent of the Albany nanotechnology cluster, characterize a bounce of management, funding, and sustained dedication that has had impressive leads to an that's actively pursued via many nations. The study's aim is to demonstrate the methods taken via numerous hugely different states as they confront the expanding demanding situations of worldwide festival for the industries and jobs of at the present time and the next day.

Every state supports a system of public universities, institutions that along with their private counterparts have been at the forefront of innovation-driven economic development for well over a century. 13 The states likewise control the provision of public K-12 education, which depending on its quality, can foster the development of an adult work force with the skill levels necessary to support an innovation-driven economy. S. advantages in universities may be eroding. 14 This has been followed in recent times by additional cuts to federal support for university R&D.
