Organized Innovation

A Blueprint for Renewing America's Prosperity

Steven C. Currall, Ed Frauenheim, Sara Jansen Perry, and Emily M. Hunter

  • The framework puts forth a systematic method for leading the translation of scientific discoveries into societal benefits through commercialization by organizing the conditions for technology breakthroughs that lead to new products, companies, and world-leading industries.
  • Universities, government, and businesses can use this framework for generating fundamentally fresh insights, developing those concepts, turning them into tangible products, and bringing those products to market to the benefit of society.
  • The authors tell the story of the Engineering Research Center (ERC) program, which has seldom been publicized, through our quantitative research data as well as through extensive interviews with ERC leaders and people in a variety of positions within ERCs.
  • Organized Innovation framework can serve as the genesis of a new national innovation policy that bases research funding programs on Organized Innovation principles.
  • The key advantage of the Organized Innovation principles is that they can maximize the public's return on research and development investments.
