The Creativity Crisis

Reinventing Science to Unleash Possibility

Roberta Ness

  • Strong critique of the academic system from a leading university dean and expert in science and innovation
  • Explores the question of why science finds itself at a crossroad between extraordinary possibility and frustrating inaction
  • A cogent and urgent argument for a rebalancing of priorities in funding agencies, universities, and industries
  • Describes opportunities for reinvigorating scientific innovation, such as engaging broad-based resources, capturing the richness of available talent for the purpose of serving society's interests, and gaining flexibility through failing as quickly and painlessly as possible
