New Publication out on Nature: Energy "The pressing energy innovation challenge of the US National Labs."

by Laura Diaz Anadon, Gabriel Chan, Amitai Y. Bin-Nun & Venkatesh Narayanamurti

Accelerating the development and deployment of energy technologies is a pressing challenge. Doing so will require policy reform that improves the efficacy of public research organizations and strengthens the links between public and private innovators.

Here, we discuss the challenges the National Laboratories face in engaging the private sector, increasing their contributions to transformative research, and developing culture and management practices to better support innovation. We also offer recommendations for how policymakers can address these challenges.
