Building a Science and Technology Roadmap for Georgia: Chapter 1
MetadataShow full item record
The State of Georgia is well-positioned to be a national leader in science and technology. With a thriving academic research infrastructure and a growing technology sector, Georgia has a strong foundation on which to build an integrated and effective S&T community. However, Georgia's S&T community faces two significant challenges: 1) the absence of an overarching strategic plan and 2) the appearance of a fragmented science and technology constituency competing for similar resources. This paper discusses the Georgia Tech Research Institute's Office of Policy Analysis and Research (OPAR) ongoing efforts to build consensus among stakeholders in order to encourage visionary leadership for science technology and innovation in Georgia.
