Crafting an Obama Innovation Policy

Athena Alliance has just published it latest report, Crafting an Obama Innovation Policy. Candidate Obama made it clear that long-term economic growth—not just economic recovery—is a priority. The campaign advanced a well-thought-out list of technology policy recommendations. President-elect Obama now faces an opportunity and a challenge. The opportunity is to broaden his agenda into an innovation policy focused on other drivers of growth—not just science and technology. The challenge is to make the best use of existing and new institutions of government to design and implement that policy without getting in each others’ way. This paper outline short-term actions that would signal a commitment to a broad innovation agenda and longer-range actions which could significantly strengthen the nation’s innovation capacity.
The report is an expansion of an earlier posting, and has been forwarded to the Obama transition team.
