The National Academies has released a brief review of recent workshop panel discussions concerning partnerships titled, “Enhancing U.S. Science and Innovation with Novel Cross Sector Partnerships: Proceedings of a Workshop in Brief.” The document describes some of the discussion from panelists concerning some of the new initiatives in the United States, including the National Science Foundation’s Directorate for Technology, Innovation and Partnerships and the National Science Foundation Regional Innovation Engines. One panelist noted that it may be time to revisit the Bayh-Dole Act’s provisions. The Accelerating Therapeutics for Opportunities in Medicine initiative was also described and recommendations were made for further consideration and improvement. One panelist also described efforts to develop a pipeline of trained workers in Ohio for STEAMM workers. STEAMM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics and Medicine.
