This project investigates the features of the research environment that enable and foster highly creative research in nanotechnology and human genetics in the US and Europe. It also examines the influence of career patterns. The study contributes to the methodology of science studies by further developing and extending curriculum vita (CV) analysis. The identification of factors in the research environment has broader implications for research and human resource management, and the design and implementation of funding schemes. The use of comparative fields extends the range of impact to two different emerging fields. Public datasets containing variables related to the creative researcher nominees is made available for use by others.
