    Publically funded energy technology research is critical for a successful low–carbon energy transition, but future uncertainty means decision–making is difficult. This Review explores the role of expert elicitations, integrated assessment models and decision frameworks in informing energy technology policy.

    A lack of entrepreneurial behaviour has often been identified as a contributor to the decline in the research and development (R&D) productivity of the pharmaceutical industry. Douglas and colleagues present an assessment of entrepreneurship in the industry, based on interviews with 26 former and current leaders of R&D departments at pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, highlighting factors that could be important in promoting entrepreneurial behaviour and revitalizing R&D productivity.
