How Tech Market Makers Build Value - strategy+business
The fact is, a large R&D budget doesn’t always translate into big investments in innovation and new markets. In many organizations, most R&D is aimed at adding incremental features to existing products or portfolios. The funds for creating new markets, often shunted into a special projects category, are typically far too small to move the needle. Market makers set their R&D priorities differently.

How the U.S. Can Rebuild Its Capacity to Innovate - HBR
Many U.S. firms have long had a simple mantra: “Invent here, manufacture there.” But, increasingly, those same companies are now choosing to invent as well as manufacture abroad. From automotive to semiconductors to pharma to clean energy, America’s innovation centers have shifted east, offering growing evidence that the U.S. has lost what Harvard Business School’s Willy Shih calls the “industrial commons”: indispensable production skills and capabilities.

Here's Why It's So Hard It's So Hard To Bring Science To Market - Digital Tonto
We’re entering a new era of innovation in which technologies like genomics, nanotechnology and robotics are going to reshape traditional industries like energy, healthcare and manufacturing.

That’s exciting, but also poses new challenges, because these technologies are ill-suited to the Silicon Valley model of venture-funded entrepreneurship and need help to them get past the Valley of Death.

Revitalizing Space Exploration Would Boost U.S. Manufacturing - Forbes
In the last decade, however, the rise of China and other competitors in space slowly led to recognition of the commercial promise and the national defense peril of falling behind in this field. Fortunately, visionary new players in the space launch business at the same time saw the commercial opportunity and helped fill the void left by the unimaginative federal program.

U.S. drone program taps Apple, passes over Amazon, China's DJI - Reuters
Among the winners were microchip maker Intel Corp, plane maker Airbus SE, ride services company Uber Technologies Inc [UBER.UL], delivery company FedEx Corp and software maker Microsoft Corp.

The contest drew 149 bids from locales looking to host flights at night, flights over people and other drone operations that U.S. rules prohibit. The applicants listed companies they would partner with in the experiments, and the winners may have a head start at the billions of dollars and tens of thousands of jobs the young industry expects to create.

An Innovation-Led Boost for US Manufacturing - The Boston Consulting Group
The US remains dominant at the front end of R&D: the nation invests three times as much as any other economy in basic research, which focuses on the pursuit of scientific knowledge, and applied research, which turns discoveries into technologies useful to industry. But the picture is different when it comes to the back end of the R&D chain— development research, which translates new knowledge from basic and applied research into commercial products and new manufacturing processes.

How automakers can get the most value from Silicon Valley - Operations Extranet by McKinsey & Company
Since the internet boom in the late 1990s, ten of the global OEMs and five of the big system suppliers have opened offices in Silicon Valley, collectively employing hundreds—by this writing, very likely well more than a thousand—of specialists working on future automotive topics to be transferred to headquarters around the world.

DOD, NSA Enter A New World Order: U.S. Is Now Dependent On Foreign Companies For Its Most Sensitive Electronics - Manufacturing & Technology News
Washington legislators have re-awakened to concerns over the Defense Department's inability to plan for and deal with what is now the final stage in the shift of American microelectronics production offshore. Congress wants the Pentagon to figure out how it is going to deal with issues associated with purchasing "trusted" electronics for military weapons and national security surveillance systems from foreign and foreign-owned producers.

Interactive: Where Companies Spend Their R&D Money - strategy+business
Corporate R&D has become overwhelmingly global. According to the 2015 Global Innovation 1000 study, 94 percent of the world’s biggest innovators now conduct parts of their R&D programs abroad. But where they spend their R&D money has changed dramatically. Asia is now the top destination for corporate R&D spending, followed by North America and Europe. In 2007, the three regions were ranked in reverse order.

How Cities Can Capitalize on Local Tech Innovation - The Experts - WSJ
Too often, technology insights fly out of local research centers and university labs and into the global production system with no stop for job creation anywhere near to home. The result is a missed opportunity—both for nations and local places but also tech companies, which may be losing out on the powerful synergies of co-located innovation and growth.

The Innovation Race: Why It's More Important Than Ever for Public & Private Sectors to Invest in Basic R&D - Gray Construction
Basic R&D has no clear end-goal, but is the kind of research from which world-changing discoveries are made. It provides the building blocks for industry to conduct applied research to innovate and develop new, more sophisticated products and services. Without basic R&D, lifesaving cancer treatments may have never materialized. The U.S. would never have become the leader in silicon transistor manufacturing— think no Silicon Valley. And, the Internet may not exist.

The Changing Nature of U.S. Basic Research: Trends in Funding Sources - SSTI
Ultimately, the nature of basic research – long horizons, unknown rewards, and high costs – indicates why some sectors, namely the private sector, may seek shorter term options. A better understanding of the changing nature of funding sources for basic research may be useful in understanding the current state of research and development in the U.S.
