Strategy for American Innovation receives final update

The US updates its Strategy for American Innovation for the final time on “Back to the Future Day” by focusing on three core components.

The US Administration has released its Strategy for American Innovation with three core components to ensure the continuation of the US' innovative economy.

The three core components of the strategy are: the importance of investing in research and development, focused effort on strategic areas such as advanced vehicles and precision medicine to advance national priorities and shared prosperity, and efforts to make the federal government more innovative.

The strategy also highlights nine areas of strategic opportunity. These are advanced manufacturing, precision medicine, advanced vehicles, smart cities, clean energy and efficient technologies, educational technology, space, high-performance computing and the Brain Initiative, which aims to deepen scientists’ understanding of how the human brain works.

The release of the strategy coincided with Back to the Future Day, the day that the fictional character Marty McFly travelled to in the film “Back to the Future II” and encountered futuristic technologies such as hoverboards.

The document called the day a useful occasion to consider how technology has evolved over the past three decades and how this could help envisage potential changes in the next 30 years.

The strategy was first issued in 2009 and then updated in 2011. This is the third and final update.
