Private & Public
Innovation alliances include public sector labs, economic development groups and representatives to standards and certification authorities.
Every major American technology innovation has drawn from some form of government conceived and funded research and development. This has been demonstrated in multiple macro and micro economic studies, and countless industry studies in sectors including aviation, information systems, materials, biochemistry, and agriculture. It is the policy of every major state government to support job formation using some form of collaboration that incorporates Research and Development. Concurrent with this reality is a large body of public dialogue eschewing the role of government in R&D. Managers are faced with the challenge of where and how to correctly engage the Federal government lab system and state economic development groups to source innovation without getting lost in a costly bureaucratic process.
