AURP Releases National Strategy for Building America's Communities of Innovation

AURP The Power of Place

Historically, American research innovation has led the way to progress in countless scientific disciplines. From establishing the first research park in the world, to building world-class research universities and federal laboratories while pioneering technology transfer and patent reform for public-private research partnerships, the U.S. has led the world in attracting research talent, funding scientific advances, and commercializing new discoveries. Innovations spawned in the basements, garages, dorm rooms, classrooms and laboratories of countless Americans will create jobs, foster the reversal of the U.S. trade imbalance, reduce U.S. dependence on foreign energy sources and attract and retain the brightest human capital. It will ultimately return the United States to the premier position it has historically enjoyed.

The United States is losing ground competitively. The ambitious entrepreneurs and scientists who are willing to invest time and money into an idea are being lost at a staggering pace to other countries. These foreign governments provide incentives for this U.S. human capital to uproot and move. These individuals find that the challenge of surviving in a foreign country is outweighed by the tremendous economic benefit these foreign communities provide.
