OSTP and NEC Seek Comments to Update Strategy for American Innovation

On July 29, 2014, the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) and the National Economic Council (NEC) published a Federal Register notice requesting public comments to provide input for an upcoming update of the Strategy for American Innovation. According to the notice, the Strategy "helps to guide the Administration's efforts to promote lasting economic growth and competitiveness through policies that support transformative American innovation in products, processes, and services and spur new fundamental discoveries that in the long run lead to growing economic prosperity and rising living standards." The national priority areas outlined in the 2011 Strategy include nanotechnology. The 2011 Strategy states:

The President is committed to investments in innovation that promise to drive better health, future economic growth, and quality jobs in America. . . . The National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) is investing in areas such as nanoelectronics, which will foster a revolution in computing comparable to the transition from the vacuum tube to the transistor. And the FY 2012 Budget is making substantial investments to accelerate breakthroughs in advanced manufacturing technologies that can provide foundations for private sector investment and growth.

The July 29, 2014, Federal Register notice includes a number of questions, grouped into the following categories of innovation policy topics:

- Overarching questions;

- Innovation trends;

- Science, technology, and research and development priorities;

- Skilled workforce development;

- Manufacturing and entrepreneurship;

- Regional innovation ecosystems;

- Intellectual property/antitrust;

- Novel government tools for promoting innovation; and

- National priorities.

Comments are due September 23, 2014.
