Title: Chinese Ways of Innovation and the Challenges of Understanding Research and Innovation in the 21st Century
Lead Author: Sun, Yifei
Abstract: Transformative innovation is the driving force for changes in global political and economical orders. However, innovation processes are not well understood. China will likely emerge as a global technological superpower in the next twenty years. As a developing country with a large low to middle-income population of consumers, world-class manufacturing capacities including flexible industrial organizations in certain regions, and a well-capitalized central state, the Chinese Ways of Innovation appear to be significantly different from those in its predecessors. We recommend the NSF/SBE to launch an interdisciplinary program with a focus on innovation in China. Analyzing the Chinese Ways of Innovation will not only add greater knowledge to academic understanding of innovation processes as well as national and regional innovation systems , but also can lead to great policy insights. To understand the Chinese Ways of Innovation, it is imperative to examine the roles of Enterprises, Science &Technology (S&T) Communities, and the State as well as the domestic and the global environments. To successfully implement this core mission, we propose that NSF-SBE gives priority consideration to projects on infrastructure, networking, and talent training programs on innovation in China, which will build the capability of analyzing innovation in China as it unfolds.
