Summary
"According to recent reports, the United States currently accounts for less than one-third of global research and development spending, and it is projected that this fraction will decline to 18% by 2050. These statistics, compounded by the recognition that the United States no longer maintains technological superiority across all research fields, highlight the need for the U.S. research community to stay abreast of emerging science and technology (S & T) around the world, to leverage others' investments, and to seek out collaborations in areas where researchers need to remain at the leading edge. ... This report considers DoD strategies in the three Services for leveraging global S & T and implementation and coordination of these strategies across DoD. The report explores models for global S & T engagement utilized by other domestic and foreign organizations. Strategic Engagement in Global S & T assesses how the ongoing globalization of S & T may impact research funding and priorities and workforce needs, as well as issues of building and maintaining trusted relationships and avoiding technology surprises"--Publisher's description.
