Prominent U.S. academics reprise plea for more basic research to fuel innovation

Prominent U.S. academics reprise plea for more basic research to fuel innovation | Higher Education and academic research | Scoop.it

New report makes familiar arguments, but authors hope policymakers will be more receptive this time around.

How long can U.S. science lobbyists keep repeating the same message—that boosting federal funding for basic research and removing barriers to innovation is a proven way to ensure economic prosperity—without tuning out their intended audience?

Le Japon veut devenir "le pays au monde où le contexte est le plus propice à l'innovation" (Yuko Harayama)

"Le Premier ministre japonais Shinzo Abe a fixé comme objectif que le Japon devienne le pays au monde où le contexte est le plus propice à l’innovation."

Ce conseil, "créé dans les années 1990", est placé sous la responsabilité du Premier ministre. Il a intégré, "par modification de la loi, en avril dernier", la dimension d’innovation, "ce qui va au-delà du symbole et l’oblige à travailler avec les industriels", précise Yuko Harayama qui détaille au cours de sa conférence les enjeux, atout s et difficultés de la politique scientifique japonaise à cet égard.

Cette annonce, faite par le président Barack Obama dans son discours sur l'État de l'Union, doit « mettre à profit le succès initial d'un institut pilote » basé à Youngstown dans l'Ohio. « Le président continuera à appeler le Congrès à adopter sa proposition d'investissement ponctuel d'un milliard de dollars (771 millions d'euros) pour créer un réseau de quinze instituts d'innovation industriels à travers le pays », précise la Maison Blanche.

L'innovation en Europe souffre d'un financement de la R&D « dominé par les fonds publics » (Ernst & Young)

« Il est hors de doute que le financement public de la recherche et du développement est resté le mode dominant de financement dans l'UE, et ceci - sur la foi des données disponibles - semble être une partie du problème de l'innovation de l'Europe. » C'est le constat que dresse le cabinet de conseil Ernst & Young dans un sondage intitulé « Faire avancer l'Europe, innover pour un avenir prospère », rendu public le 23 avril 2013. Pour le réaliser, « 680 chefs d'entreprises européens » ont été interrogés, précise le cabinet sans donner plus de détails. « Les données confirment que les pays où les dépenses de R&D du secteur privé sont significatives comparées à celles du secteur public ont les meilleurs résultats en innovation », indique Ernst & Young qui cite notamment l'exemple des pays scandinaves. Par ailleurs, 74 % des chefs d'entreprises interrogés pour cette étude estiment que « les dépenses du secteur privé apportent une contribution significative à l'innovation scientifique et technologique de leur pays » - contre 66 % dans la précédente édition de l'étude.
