R&D Can Move Between Sectors


Ann All just posted an interview with Brian Curry, a spokesman for a regional economic development group that brokers deals to transfer R&D from large corporations to entrepreneurial firms that can make better use of an innovation.

Example: Kraft Foods created a process to cut cholesterol from eggs, but FDA regs put the innovation into a market where Kraft didn't want to be. The key to sharing such innovations, Curry says, is to find partners who don't seem like an obvious match at first glance.

It's an interesting take on the business of innovation, and well worth a read.
