Globalization of R&D and Innovation: Implications for U.S. STEM Workforce and Policy

Testimony before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Technology and Innovation
November 6, 2007

Abstract

Dr. Harold Salzman tells a House subcommittee on innovation and technology that new perspectives on competition and new routes for sharing knowledge freely across borders have prompted firms and universities to globalize. Salzman argues that globalization is not prompted by any deficiencies in the domestic supply of trained workers, and that "techno-nationalist" policies of the past are outdated and ineffective.
