The Obama Innovation Strategy builds on well over $100 billion of Recovery Act funds that support innovation, additional support for education, infrastructure and others in the Recovery Act and the President’s Budget, and novel regulatory and executive order initiatives. It seeks to harness the inherent ingenuity of the American people and a dynamic private sector to ensure that the next expansion is more solid, broad-based, and beneficial than previous ones. It focuses on critical areas where sensible, balanced government policies can lay the foundation for innovation that leads to quality jobs and shared prosperity.显示部分

The United States is the birthplace of the Internet, which today connects three billion people around the world. American scientists and engineers sequenced the human genome, invented the semiconductor, and sent humankind to the moon. And America is not done yet.
For an advanced economy such as the United States, innovation is a wellspring of economic growth. While many countries can grow by adopting existing technologies and business practices, America must continually innovate because our workers and firms are often operating at the technological frontier. Innovation is also a powerful tool for addressing our most pressing challenges as a nation, such as enabling more Americans to lead longer, healthier lives, and accelerating the transition to a low-carbon economy.
Last year, U.S. businesses created jobs faster than at any time since the 1990s. Now is the time to renew our commitment to innovation to drive economic growth and shared prosperity for decades to come. Now is the time for the Federal Government to make the seed investments that will enable the private sector to create the industries and jobs of the future, and to ensure that all Americans are benefiting from the innovation economy.
In 2009, President Obama first issued the Strategy for American Innovation, and it was updated in 2011. In this final refresh of the President s Strategy, the Administration has identified additional policies to sustain the innovation ecosystem that will deliver benefits to all Americans.显示部分

Today, as an ever-increasing range of new technologies disrupt the sector with exponential speed, tech business leaders are focused on how to create new value propositions for their customers, and how to run their own organizations more effectively. The disruptors are being disrupted, and any company that fails to acknowledge and embrace this new reality runs the risk of being left behind. For this global study, KPMG International commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a survey of 580 senior technology decision makers. It reveals that, while many technology leaders express optimism about disruptive technologies, they are also aware that they lack the organizational capability, culture, strategic vision and a solid understanding of the impact disruptive technologies will have on their sector, in order to successfully navigate this revolution.显示部分

It can allow Americans to live longer, healthier lives, reduce our dependence on oil, address key environmental challenges, transform manufacturing processes, and increase the productivity and scope of the agricultural sector while growing new jobs and industries.显示部分
