R&D Policy

How to best utilize public resources to advance science and technology

Would you invest $1 million to build schools in poor neighborhood or to fund scientific research programs? If the latter, would you fund basic science research or emerging technology development? With increasing complexity and uncertainty, contemporary R&D has staked ever-larger resources, in return facing growing demand for performance and public accountability. We explore the dilemmas and tensions underlying the allocation and management of publicly funded R&D, ultimately aiming to transform the public R&D system into a social institution for public values.
