Video: PARC’s Scott Elrod on the importance of government-supported R&D


I caught up with Scott Elrod, Director of the Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) Hardware Systems Lab, while we were both at the 2nd annual ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit near Washington.

In this era of government cutbacks, I think it’s important to underline the importance of continued public funding for long-term technology research and development that may not lead to profitable products for some time.

In this video, I asked Elrod to describe the importance of government funding to some of his company’s work.
