Consultants’ Reports of Data Analysis
The committee engaged and directed independent consultants to analyze data and information provided by ARPA-E and available in the public domain as part of its evaluation of ARPA-E. Those consultants produced two working papers detailing the results of their analysis. The committee utilized both working papers in its deliberations and analysis. The first, Goldstein and Kearney (2016), analyzes internally-generated data from ARPA-E. The second, Goldstein (2016), analyzes publically available data. These working papers are available on the NAP website at: https://www.nap.edu/catalog/24778 under the Resources tab.
