About this product
- DescriptionAccelerating energy invation could be an important part of an effective response to the threat of climate change. Written by a stellar group of experts in the field, this book complements existing research on the subject with an exploration of the role that public and private policy have played in enabling - and sustaining - swift invation in a variety of industries, from agriculture and the life sciences to information techlogy. Chapters highlight the factors that have determined the impact of past policies and suggest that effectively managed federal funding, strategies to increase customer demand, and the enabling of aggressive competition from new firms are important ingredients for policies that affect invative activity.
