By Steering Committee for Government-Industry Partnership for the Development of New Technologies, Technology, and Economic Policy Board on Science, National Research Council, Charles W. Wessner

NASA Ames study heart, within the middle of Silicon Valley, is embarking on a application to enhance a technological know-how and expertise park bringing jointly major businesses and universities to capitalize on Ames remarkable challenge and site. different projects into consideration contain the mixing of SBIR offers with a deliberate on-site incubator, digital collaboration, and probably a brand new public enterprise capital application. The STEP Board used to be requested by way of the NASA Administrator to carry a one-day symposium to check those projects. This document comprises commissioned study papers and a precis of the court cases of the symposium geared up in keeping with the NASA request.

19 uses a measure of “high-tech spatial concentration” to describe “Tech-Poles” through the country. In his evaluation, the Tech-Pole of Silicon Valley ranks more than three times higher than its closest competitor. ” p. 6. 15 Ames has planned university partnerships with Carnegie Mellon University and the University of California at Santa Cruz, which bring considerable strengths in science and technology, and an industrial partnership with Lockheed Martin (one division of which abuts the Ames property).

35. 28 A REVIEW OF THE NEW INITIATIVES AT THE NASA AMES RESEARCH CENTER To address the metrics gap, Luger and Goldstein have developed multiple approaches to measure success. One is to evaluate performance against stated goals, as written into legislation and found in documents and interviews. They also use a multiple case-study approach, along with a quasi-experimental design, comparing areas with parks to similar areas without parks. 20 Box B. The Notion of Success “The overall policy lesson we have drawn from this analysis is that in many regions research parks by themselves will not be a wise investment.
