4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 252 libraries worldwide

Borderline case : international tax policy, corporate research and development, and investment by James M Poterba( Book )
9 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 228 libraries worldwide
"The growing integration of world markets for capital and goods, coupled with the rise of instantaneous worldwide communication, has made identification of corporations as "American," "Dutch," or "Japanese" extremely difficult. Yet tax treatment does depend of where a firm is chartered. And, as Borderline Case documents, there is little doubt that tax rules for firms doing business in several nations--firms that account for more than three-quarters of corporate R & D spending in the United States--have substantial effects on corporate decisionmaking and, ultimately, U.S. competitiveness. This book explores the impact of the U.S. tax code and its incentives on the international activities of U.S.- and foreign-based firms: basic research outlays, expenditures on product and process development, and plant and equipment investment. The authors include industry experts from large multinational firms in technology and pharmaceuticals, academic researchers who have explored the quantitative impact of tax provisions on R & D, and tax policy analysts who have examined international tax rules in the broader context of tax reform. These experts look at how corporate investment and R & D are shaped by specific tax provisions, such as the definition of taxable income, relative tax burdens on domestic and foreign business, taxation of earnings repatriated to the United States, deductibility of expenses of worldwide operations, and U.S. corporate taxes relative to other countries. The volume explores prescriptions and prospects for tax reform and reviews major reform proposals and their implications for the behavior of multinational business."--Publisher's description

Capitalizing on new needs and new opportunities : government-industry partnerships in biotechnology and information technologies by Charles W Wessner( Book )
6 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 88 libraries worldwide
This report addresses a topic of recognized policy concern. To capture the benefits of substantial U.S. investments in biomedical R & D, parallel investments in a wide range of seemingly unrelated disciplines are also required. This report summarizes a major conference that reviewed our nation's R & D support for biotechnology and information technologies. The volume includes newly commissioned research and makes recommendations and findings concerning the important relationship between information technologies and biotechnology. It emphasizes the fall off in R & D investments needed to sustain the growth of the U.S. economy and to capitalize on the growing investment in biomedicine. It also encourages greater support for inter-disciplinary training to support new areas such as bioinformatics and urges more emphasis on and support for multi-disciplinary research centers
Building Hawaii's innovation economy : summary of a symposium by Charles W Wessner( Book )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 74 libraries worldwide
Recognizing the opportunities for growth based on innovation, the state of Hawaii is actively seeking to diversify its economy by drawing on the University of Hawaii system and other research and educational organizations as engines of sustainable, innovation-led growth. To this end, the University of Hawaii (UH) under the leadership of its new President, Dr. M.R.C. Greenwood, convened an Innovation Council made up of nationally recognized experts to develop recommendations to grow the state's knowledge-based economy. In launching the Council's report, the University of Hawaii partnered with the National Academies Board on Science, Technology, and Economic Policy to convene a major conference in January 2011. This conference drew together the state's political, academic, and business leadership, along with federal officials and national experts to highlight key challenges and opportunities facing Hawaii and to identify key steps toward meetings the Innovation Council's objectives
Aeronautics innovation : NASA's challenges and opportunities by Stephen A Merrill( Book )
6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 69 libraries worldwide
NASA is a global leader in aeronautics research and development - fostering advances in aviation safety and emissions, propulsion technology, and many other areas. And the agency's Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate (ARMD) has played a vital role in the U.S. aeronautics industry. In recent years, the directorate's leaders and experts outside the agency have sought ways to speed innovative uses of ARMD's research results. But the directorate faces management challenges that make it difficult for such applications to succeed - or to occur at all. This report from the National Academies' National Research Council, offers the agency guidance on how to manage the transfer of technology to external users, as well as implement flexible personnel and financial-management practices. The report also points out problems that stem from a lack of agreement on ARMD's future direction and several years of federal budget cuts
