Developing and Implementing a Science & Technology Plan

Science & Innovation
Challenge Session
Justine Stadler, New Hampshire EPSCoR

This Challenge Session will facilitate discussion and sharing of best practices for the development of an effective Science & Technology Plan that aligns the state’s research capacity to industry strengths. A few case studies will be presented. Discussion will include 1) strategies for the scope of an S&T plan and methods of development (e.g. in-house, consultant; 2) the role of the jurisdiction’s State Committee in the development and implementation of the plan; 3) advocacy for science, technology and innovation funding, and involvement of the jurisdiction’s economic development office, and 4) lessons learned.
