A Review of the New Initiatives at the NASA Ames Research by Steering Committee for Government-Industry Partnership for

By Steering Committee for Government-Industry Partnership for the Development of New Technologies, Technology, and Economic Policy Board on Science, National Research Council, Charles W. Wessner

NASA Ames learn middle, within the center of Silicon Valley, is embarking on a application to advance a technological know-how and know-how park bringing jointly top businesses and universities to capitalize on Ames remarkable challenge and placement. different tasks into consideration comprise the combination of SBIR gives you with a deliberate on-site incubator, digital collaboration, and probably a brand new public enterprise capital software. The STEP Board used to be requested by way of the NASA Administrator to carry a one-day symposium to study those projects. This record contains commissioned examine papers and a precis of the complaints of the symposium geared up in keeping with the NASA request.

Lockheed Martin, which has collaborated with Ames on the strategic plan, already performs virtually all of its research in the context of government and industry partnerships, and Ames would benefit from this experience. At Ames, Lockheed would direct a Research Initiative Fund to support new programs, consult on human resources and regional development programs, and direct most of the large structural improvements to the facility. Expanded Research and Educational Outreach Dr. C. Greenwood, chancellor of the University of California at Santa Cruz, described her institution’s primary objectives in forming a partnership with 3 See the papers by Michael Luger and David Audretsch in this volume.

The Brookings Institution, 1991, chapter 12. Peter Grindley, David Mowery, and Brian Silverman make a similar point, noting that the consortium’s goals changed over time, reflecting the changing perceptions of its members’ needs. This operational flexibility is probably essential in an industry evolving as rapidly as the semiconductor industry.

OVERVIEW AND SUMMARY OF THE WORKSHOP 17 context for its planning activities. The commissioned work by David B. , underscores the unique features of the Ames Research Park proposal. Rather than seeking to provide an engine of growth for the region via outward technology transfer, Audretsch observes that the goal of the Ames park is to enable NASA to achieve its mission by providing economical access to technological capabilities external to NASA. This would occur both through the inward transfer of technologies developed outside of NASA and through the joint development of new technologies by NASA in conjunction with its partners in private industry and the universities.
