U.S.-China Innovation Survey of Expert Opinion
A Joint Tsinghua-UCSD Project
About the Survey
The U.S.-China Innovation Survey of Expert Opinion provides a unique angle to understanding the gap between the innovative capacity of the United States and China. Administered to industry experts in targeted high-tech industries, the survey highlights each country’s level of innovation, time needed to reach the global technological frontier, and insights into the innovation environment, such as obstacles to innovation.
Using a new survey methodology, the survey is designed around two questions:
Ultimately, the survey contributes to policy discussion and academic research on the advancing technological capabilities of China and factors affecting the success of high-tech industries in both the United States and China. By utilizing a qualitative framework and directly targeting industry experts, the survey goes beyond many traditional indicators (i.e. patent output, R&D expenditures, STEM graduates) that often misrepresent actual innovation levels.
The survey is a joint project between the UC Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation (IGCC), the University of California San Diego School of International Relations and Pacific Studies (IR/PS), and the Tsinghua University School of Public Policy and Management (SPPM).
