The fast development in cooperative learn and improvement (R&D) is basically a reaction to the pressures of overseas pageant.

Thus, incentives to participate in research consortia increase with the absolute level of the commercial benefits of conducting the research. 3. Probability of Consortium Formation.

Thus, while there are important advantages in principle to supporting certain types of research through pUblic-private research consortia, the important question remains of whether such arrangements are financially viable in practice. 4.

2. Emergence of Public-Private Cooperative Resarch Ventures As in the case of privately organized joint research, cooperation between private industry and government laboratories is not a new phenomenon. For example, there has been and continues to be a long-standing tradition of collaboration between scientists and engineers from private industry and their counterparts at the National Bureau of Standards (NBS)~ However, such participation has consisted largely of arrangements in which scientists and engineers have been lent out or detailed to work on existing research programs at NBS that have been primarily supported by public funds.
