Problem

Uncoordinated research efforts

Nature:
Inadequate structures to coordinate and assign research responsibilities inhibit the establishment of corporate priorities in a global context. Research is thus not accountable to society's total needs but to the popularity of the subjects being investigated, so that breakthroughs in technology are restricted to certain areas, resulting in unnecessary duplication and benefits which are not shared globally.
