Research Policy Covers Grand Challenges and Policy

Research Policy has published a special issue on the need for a new generation of policy instruments to respond to the Grand Challenges.

In this issue, Profs Foray, Mowery and Nelsonpresent  an article called "Public R&D and social challenges: What lessons from mission R&D programs?", where they argue that   Manhattan and Apollo are not the right models for new programs aimed at the challenges we now face:

" Nevertheless, mission-oriented R&D programs can be of great value if they are well designed to fit the particular challenge and the context. Second, we believe that familiarity with a range of existing mission oriented R&D programs can provide useful guidance for the design of new programs aimed at these challenges."
