Rex Hime – why are is our industry fudning of R&D not increased? Are we not trying hard enough?
Answer: There are two things – one is that businesses have started depending more on Federal funding of RnD – it’s shown that investing in research is not necessarily the most beneficial…it’s difficultto justify in a business model.
The other thing is that industry research is something very restricted – they want applied research, but the University does Basic Research. Also, we don’t want to do industry research that might end up upsetting our federal research funding model, or would not be able us to serve the public mission.
