Useful Stats: Distribution of R&D performance by state - SSTI
Nearly three-quarters of all research and development was performed by the private sector in fiscal year 2016, though this share differed greatly across the states, according to an SSTI analysis of recently released data from the National Science Foundation’s National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics (NSF NCSES). Delaware showed the greatest concentration of business R&D (90.5 percent of all R&D in the state), while Tennessee had the most diversified R&D portfolio with a roughly even distribution of R&D performed by businesses, higher education and federally funded R&D centers (FFRDC’s). The interactive chart below shows the breakdown of performers of research and development for each state.

The most innovative metro areas in the US - Verizon Resource Center
So how does one determine what exactly qualifies as “innovative”? New patents are a good place to start, as patented technology is typically a fair indicator of new and exciting advancements in many different fields. The metro areas that have produced the most patents in correlation to their population were identified and sorted, referencing data provided by the US Census Bureau from the year 2015 (the most recent information available).

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.

Stanley Black & Decker's downtown tech center a beacon into U.S. manufacturing's future - HartfordBusiness.com
Inside a downtown Hartford skyscraper, legendary New Britain hand- and power-tool maker Stanley Black & Decker has set up a collaborative technology laboratory whose aim is to bottle innovation lightning of all kinds.

When it formally debuts as early as late October, the pilot Stanley Technology Center in One Constitution Plaza will house several hundred engineers, scientists, tinkerers and aspiring tech-entrepreneurs, each with a goal of devising the next new commercial-industrial product or service, or improving production-line capabilities and efficiencies.

The IT revolution and the globalisation of R&D - VOX, CEPR Policy Portal
US firms have begun shifting R&D investment towards non-traditional destinations such as China, India, and Israel. The column argues that this is a response to a shortage in software and IT-related human capital within the US. When US multinationals are able to import talent or export R&D work, this reinforces US technological leadership. Conversely, politically engineered constraints on this response will undermine the competitiveness of US-based firms.

Commentary: Making the most of federal funds for regional innovation - SSTI
At the end of this month, applications are due for two of the federal government’s most notable programs for funding clusters and regional innovation initiatives: the SBA’s Regional Innovation Clusters (RIC) program and the EDA’s Regional Innovation Strategies (RIS) program. As practitioners develop their proposals for these programs, it is worth considering potential lessons learned from the successes of previous awardees and the major challenges they have faced.

There’s No Good Alternative to Investing in R&D - HBR
If the large companies currently responsible for the innovation engines in this country shut down those engines in anticipation of acquiring technology startups downstream, they won’t just hurt themselves. With less big-company R&D to exploit, there will be fewer or less innovative startups. Most important, the entire nation will experience lower growth.

States of Innovation 2017: States look to tax incentives to spur startup investments, R&D, business growth - SSTI
Over the past year, state lawmakers in approximately have looked to grow innovation and entrepreneurship in their respective states by introducing and expanding tax credit efforts intended to increase the availability of startup capital, support R&D activities, facilitate business growth, and spur job creation. The two most common types of tax credits proposed to support innovation at the state level are angel tax credit programs and R&D tax credit programs. In addition to these two areas, states also proposed other tax credits intended to support job creation and business growth.

The Fragile State of the Midwest’s Public Universities - The Atlantic
University research is in trouble, and so is an economy more dependent on it than many people understand. Federal funding for basic research—more than half of it conducted on university campuses like this one—has effectively declined since 2008, failing to keep pace with inflation. This is before taking into account Trump administration proposals to slash the National Science Foundation (NSF) and National Institutes of Health (NIH) budgets by billions of dollars more.

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.
