Innovation thrives when a diverse set of ideas come together, and globalisation plays an important role in facilitating this process. This recombination often happens through skilled people moving to top talent clusters or labs. Over 40 per cent of the researchers at America’s top seven cancer research centres are foreign-born, and one researcher described how the interaction of these nationalities and their educational differences helped to foster breakthrough research. A recent book by W. Kerr, The Gift of Global Talent, further connects this global talent to important transformations (many good, some bad) in the businesses and economies of countries like the United States and United Kingdom.
