Description: In December 2007, ASTRA (the Alliance for Science & Technology Research in America) released its report - Riding the Rising Tide: A 21st Century Strategy for U.S. Competitiveness and Prosperity. It echoes and builds upon the now familiar concern about the lack of an innovation strategy in the US. The ASTRA report offers a 14 point plan: 1. Balance Defense/Civilian share of Federal R&D portfolio 2. Increase federal funding for physical sciences and engineering research 3. Increase and stabilize funding for applied research 4. Focus R&D on leading edge of science and technology 5. Increase R&D to support growing services sector 6. Increase focus on interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary research, new forms of collaboration, and nurturing innovative capacity in geographic regions where innovative capacity exists but is under-used 7. Provide incentives for benefits of federal R&D to be captured within the U.S. 8. Examine adequacy of U.S. skills for innovation economy 9. Improve statistical and career information about the U.S. science, technology and engineering workforce 10. Improve higher education for scientists and engineers by focusing on global and cultural awareness, communications, business and management skills 11. Strengthen efforts to attract top foreign students and stem professionals to the U.S.; remove barriers to immigration of talent 12. Perform white house review of laws, regulations and policies; address inhibitors to innovation 13. Develop a meaningful set of innovation indicators to guide U.S. innovation policy and strategy and 14. Create, and provide adequate support for, better government analysis of U.S. and foreign innovation systems.
