Technology now allows for easier collaboration among researchers across multiple continents, quickly bringing globalization to North Carolina’s Research Triangle Park. For RTI International, global diversity of business relationships is crucial as the non-profit becomes less reliant upon lucrative contracts with the U.S. government, a change which has become even more important under sequestration.

Fred Cartwright at the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research and Jim Roberts of the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the University of North Carolina Wilmington join the conversation.
