Knowledge Transfers from Federally Funded Research and Development Centers

Albert Link

No 21-3, UNCG Economics Working Papers from University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Department of Economics

Abstract: The findings from a study of the relationship between postdoctoral students and R&D at Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs) are presented in this paper. The goal of the study is not only to understand better knowledge transfers from publicly supported R&D but also to estimate the returns to R&D conducted in federally funded laboratories. Using public domain data related to FFRDCs, published by the U.S. National Science Foundation, the R&D elasticity of doctoral students is estimated over the years 2010 through 2019 to be about 0.85. This estimate compares well to previous studies of the returns to publicly funded R&D.
