[ COLLABORATION ]
Innovation doesn’t happen in a vacuum.
The brightest stars in the high-tech universe are characterized by collaborative, proximate clusters of complementary innovators, academics and industries. Successful innovation ecosystems capitalize on local interactions as a basis for building “strong” links between stakeholders enabling the transfer of ideas and resources as well as the discovery of unexpected opportunities.
Improving capability and offsetting development costs through enhanced S&T engagement means setting the conditions for more regular, sustained and fulsome access to international partners. Such an approach does not simply imply more personnel exchange opportunities.
It means investing in communities where international stakeholders representing the S&T, operational and acquisition communities can leverage shared infrastructure and work side-by-side
