The 2019 Global Funding Forecast (GFF) offers rich ground for a deeper discussion within the R&D community and top leadership as it reveals trends, changes and challenges in the landscape worldwide. For the first time, the R&D 100 Conference is bringing together a panel of experts who will share how R&D budgeting trends impact their own organizations and work in the field. Looking at the executive highlights of R&D Magazine’s GFF preview as well as their own experiences, they will dig deeper into the trends to watch.
This Plenary Panel will provides insights by experienced domestic and offshore industrial and government R&D managers for creating new R&D budgets for 2019 and 2020. All aspects of R&D will be discussed by the panel—and these will include the recruitment and retention of skilled R&D personnel; the estimating, generation and justification of R&D operating costs; the calculation and required documentation for R&D-based capital expenditures; and the current status of R&D grants and proposals.
Information will be provided on the status of R&D-based taxes, deductions, credits, incentives and the short-term outlook for R&D budget growth. A discussion of how new technologies are impacting R&D budgeting plans will also be a highlight of this panel presentation. Each panel member will provide a short talk on R&D budgeting trends in their own immediate work organizations. This will be followed by a series of key questions posed to the panel by the moderator and concluding with a Q&A session with the audience and panel.
