To date, the focus on climate change has been largely on engineering and chemistry—building improved solar panels, taller wind turbines, or better batteries—and biology has largely been ignored. That needs to change. Gene editing has emerged in the past decade as a key platform technology that has already proved its potential to drive dramatic innovations in medicine and agriculture. But beyond these well-publicized applications, recent advances in the field also offer promising opportunities to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture and other sectors, to capture carbon from the atmosphere, and to support biofuel development, according to a new report released today by the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF), the world’s top-ranked think tank for science and technology policy.

The United States provides far less federal and state tax support for companies to conduct research and development (R&D) than comparable countries around the world, and it is on track to fall further behind the pack due to provisions in the Tax Cuts and Job Creation Act of 2017, according to a new report released today by the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF), the leading think tank for science and technology policy. The report urges Congress to more than double federal R&D credit rates as part of a package of innovation-inducing tax reforms that would boost Americans’ real incomes and economic growth by increasing productivity and competitiveness.

The COVID-19 pandemic has proved to be the most disruptive force of the year, and climate change is likely to produce some of the most sweeping societal disruptions of the 21st century—but in the mid-horizon, it is the rise of China that constitutes the most significant global business disruptor of the decade, according to a new report released today by the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF), the leading think tank for science and technology policy.

Start-up companies in the burgeoning field of clean-energy technology—a.k.a., “climate-tech”—become more successful when they partner with federal agencies and laboratories, according to a new report released today by the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF), the leading think tank for science and technology policy.
