We needs to all hold jointly or without doubt we are going to all cling individually. Benjamin Franklin the numerous apathy that characterised relationships among indus­ attempt to universities and the antagonistic nature of relationships among and executive have either light swiftly within the Eighties because the realities of worldwide festival have surfaced within the usa. either and executive leaders articulate a few constructs for regaining our competitiveness in global markets. one of many extra fre­ quent thoughts prescribed during this new competitiveness period is cooperation. diversified participants or teams may well espouse varied definitions, inter­ pretations, or components of emphasis, however the total significance of this idea is enormous. even supposing examples of cooperative examine have existed for numerous many years, the quantity and diversity of relationships have accelerated swiftly within the Nineteen Eighties as enterprises, universities, and governments have embraced this approach. Joint ventures regarding or 3 enterprises elevated from less than 2 hundred consistent with 12 months within the Seventies to over four hundred consistent with 12 months by means of the mid-1980s. Multiple-firm cooperative preparations are a more moderen phenomenon, made attainable via the nationwide Cooperative learn Act of 1984. through mid- 1988,81 of those industry-level consortia had shaped lower than the provisions of the 1984 Act. The quick development in cooperative examine and improvement (R&D) is basically a reaction to the pressures of foreign festival. As a company procedure, cooperative R&D meets momentary wishes for resources to enforce new techniques for dealing with intensifying competition.

Example text

Advisory boards, for example, in directing early research 16 THE ROLE PLAYERS towards commercially viable products and generic technologies, will be crucial in such fields as material science and semiconductors, where the research-development-commercialization time span is relatively brief, technology diffusion is rapid, and generic technologies predominate. Despite the variety of applications, the high level of interest in government lab-industry cooperation, and the push provided by recent legislation, progress has been slow.

Thus in five years, the share of the costs of NBS activities financed by private sources rose from roughly 16% to 25%. Under such circumstances, it is not surprising that attempts would be made to devise alternative means of supporting research to develop infratechnologies and/or generic technologies. On the one hand, increased demands for certain types of research at NBS were created by the need to develop certain types of measurement-intensive intermediate technological inputs. On the other, the budgetary environment created incentives to devise arrangements for responding to such demands that relied less than previously on public tax dollars.
