From the Stimulus Economy to the Knowledge Economy: Why Tec NA is even more critical ! Richard Seline CEO and Principal New Economy Strategies www.new-econ.com
The Guidance and Instructions on the Recovery Spend…
As Tec NA has already discovered, the guidance, instructions, staffing, and distribution of the Recovery Act dollars is dripping out bit, by bit, by bit…and thus leaving much in doubt, confusing, and worse lowering expectations about what is required to obtain, use, and measure
ARRA – The Stimulus Portfolio As Of Today!
Simple Agenda: NES Request of Tec NA
ARRA – the Economic Stimulus Act requires in Titles 15 & 16 to measure performance – first against waste-fraud-abuse, second for economic recovery and job growth so as to advance competitiveness
A consortia of national associations representing state-regional-elected officials, economic development, science and technology along with the National Academy for Public Administration is working with New Economy Strategies
Intentions are clear – to ensure that the metrics for applying the nearly $1 Trillion in existing, emerging dollars creates sustainable economic competitiveness and innovation capacity building in every state, town, village and community
Information, knowledge, and data WILL drive the application, implementation , and ultimately the outcomes for success
Public and Private Sector CIOs are again critical to the Nation
NES asks that TechNA join the consortia to provide counsel, guidance, and input to the metrics, requirements for meeting expectations, and most importantly communicate with the IT, Software, Digital Media community!
Focus – The National Dashboard on Federal-Regional Economic Stimulus Impact
The Innovation Lifecycle
Innovation usually occurs in clusters
Clusters are composed of complementary firms
Kansas City Value Chain: Where is the Critical Infrastructure of Commercialization?
Clusters of Knowledge Industry Clusters
Industry and occupational employment remain the foundation for competencies and competitiveness: Occupational Clusters
Consumer product dev.
Drug design clinical trials
Further refine Competency definitions or benchmarking
Clusters of Knowledge: Why the ARRA Places Bets on Skills Development Coupled with Innovation Contrast Competency Needs (U.S. cluster-wide) to Workforce Clusters available Locally:
Technology Drivers, Targets of Opportunity, & Areas for Industry Expansion: Case Study for A Southern State Advanced Systems & Materials / Polymers / Nanotechnology Biomedical Research Advanced Manufacturing Aerospace & Defense Transportation & Logistics UAVs / Sensors / Micro-Electro- Mechanical Systems Biomedical Engineering / Diagnostics / Drug Development Military Technologies / Shipbuilding / Professional R&D Services Modeling & Simulation Technology Interdisciplinary & innovative engineering
Product and Facility Safety and Design Product Safety and Design Environmental & Alternative Energy Regional Health Infoplex (connecting knowledge with medical devices, rehabilitation and preventive medicine) Facility and Spatial Design Medical Devices and Rehabilitation Services Behavioral and Preventive Healthcare Targets of Opportunity Implementation Teams “ End Point” Economic Opportunities: Case Study for A Northeast City Entrepreneurs, Innovators, Disruptors: Economic Leadership “ End Point” Economic Opportunities – Recovery and Growth
Hospital Facility Design
21 st Century Kitchen
Toy Safety and Design
Consumer Products Safety
Underpinned by IT, Software and Digital Media
NES Business Intelligence Toolkit: The National Dashboard Components Unique Data-Sets - 28 million records of ALL federal funding grants and contracts in 600 categories driving the US economy coupled with papers-patents, venture capital, occupation and employment data Visual Analytics – Present data in new graphical and interactive, formats. Data extracts and drill-downs can be analyzed and manipulated in real-time. Competitive Assessments – Compare data on innovation inputs and performance across multiple regions. Cluster Analysis – Instantaneously view, contrast, and aggregate regional data on employment concentration and future output growth for any industry. Top Performers –Identify leading recipients of patent awards, Federal funding and venture capital to pinpoint a state or region’s economic engines and best innovators. Geographic Scope – Datasets are available at the county and zip code level across the nation.
Starting with the Traditional Clusters of Employment & Wage Concentration

NES Toolkit Leading to National Dashboard
Federal Funding by Recipient Type
Patent and Intellectual Property by Sector
Sourcing the Economic Drivers and Innovators Current & Future Trends in Your States and Communities as well as Washington DC Including Papers, Other IP Federal Funding of R&D 1996-2008 Patent Filings 2000-2008 Industry Partnerships, SBIRs, Commercialization Activities, Advisory or Board Positions on Enterprises “ 20% doing 80% of the Economy-building and Innovation “
Alignment with Market Drivers
Anticipatory Translational, Applied R&D for Deal-Flow
Networks of Top Performers for Innovation-Focused Recovery
Plus Specialized Equipment, Facilities, Operations
Why Communities and Networks of Innovation?
Utah’s Biotech, Information Technology : Case Study for Targeting $1 Billion in State Resources
An Interactive Network for the National Dashboard on the Stimulus
Catalyzing New Metrics on The National Recovery, Competitiveness and Innovation
Beyond research, patents and license revenues, there are additional ways to measure performance of the discovery-development-delivery scenario among academic, non-profit and industry research activities
These metrics focus on relationships first , then transactions. The connectivity between individuals, interests, and innovation must be captured to tell the story of the research, engineering, industrial design, manufacturing, and logistics… beyond what any current survey defines.
By taking a leadership role, Tec NA defines the scenario for its membership, helps shape the larger environmental conditions for success from traditional funding AND the Stimulus, and assists industry-academia-entrepreneur-economic development pathways towards the Knowledge Economy: but now collaboratively, collectively the Stimulus Economy requires more intensive measures of results!
