BENCHMARKING & BEST PRACTICES

  • American scientists and innovators have led the way in taking discoveries from the lab to the market and improving quality of life. Much of this success is due to the unique partnership between the federal government, universities, and private industry.
  • However, America’s competitive edge is now at stake, as China and other countries are rapidly increasing investments in research and workforce development in order to assume positions of global leadership.
  • Our nation risks falling perilously behind in the basic scientific research that drives innovation, as our global competitors increase support for cutting-edge research and push to the forefront in fields such as artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, aerospace, advanced manufacturing, and the next generation of telecommunications networks.
