In this webinar, Dr Niklas Z Kviselius, STINT’s representative in North America, will guide you through a newly published STINT-report on the USA. The U.S. has the most technologically powerful economy in the world and its firms are at or near the forefront of technological advances in areas such as information technology, pharmaceuticals, and medical, aerospace, and military equipment.
A research-friendly narrative is currently gaining ground in the U.S., with bipartisan leadership and robust proposals from both houses of congress and the Biden administration not only to keep the lights on in universities and laboratories, but to increase science funding and start investing better for the future.
The emphasis is on giving an outside observer and potential future collaboration partner some familiarity with the U.S. system. Key federal actors are introduced, as well as some of the most influential actors in three major states (California, Texas and New York). The current focus and public sector direction of the U.S. science and innovation system are laid out, and recent trends are presented, based on budgeting.
The aim of this report and webinar is to spur an interest in international collaboration based on the strengths and challenges the US research funding actors have identified and are working on. We are looking forward to an active discussion as to the evolving opportunities Sweden can identify in collaboration with the USA.
