ARISE II—Advancing Research In Science and Engineering: The Role of Academia, Industry, and Government in the 21st Century
The ARISE II project developed actionable recommendations to sustain a competitive U.S. research enterprise. This work was designed to foster new relationships across the disciplines and between the private and public sectors.
Over the past six decades, advances in science and technology have boosted the U.S. economy, improved health care, and strengthened national security. Yet many of the institutional, federal, and industry policies that supported these important advances need to be re-thought in light of changes to the research ecosystem and increased pressure on research dollars.
Building on the Academy’s ARISE I study, which focused on early-career scientists and high-risk, high-reward research, ARISE II examined the role of three critical players in the U.S. research enterprise: academia, industry, and government. The project considered new models for interactions among these players and proposed changes to the research system in order to meet twenty-first-century challenges.
The ARISE II report includes actionable recommendations to transcend existing cultural and structural barriers and permit government, industry, and research universities to build new platforms for collaboration.
