"Deeply thought-provoking." --Vint Cerf.
A technology pioneer and business leader, Estrin describes in Closing the Innovation Gap what will be required to reignite the spark of innovation in business, education, and government--ensuring our long-term success in the global economy. Innovation does not occur in a vacuum. It grows from the interplay of three drivers of creative change--research, development, and application. Estrin calls this dynamic the Innovation Ecosystem, explaining how these communities work together to create sustainable innovation.
