High level 'innovation' thinking receives scant attention
By Peter Kerr for sticK
(sticK - 4 August 2011 ) At last, some slightly solid thinking about the innovation part of our economy.
Sir Peter Gluckman's under-reported speech on the 'Globalisation of science: New Zealand's R&D direction' is the first tentative indication of some higher level views on how we turn ideas into income.
The PM's chief science advisor gives some pretty sobering statistics and examples along the way - shorthand to say, 'this innovation caper ain't easy'.
