This month's issue features the recipients of our top annual individual awards—the 2011 Scientist of the Year and 2011 Innovator of the Year. Their pioneering work has helped transform their respective fields. At the other end of the career path, the editors look at what large corporations are doing to foster the next generation of innovators. Coverage of the editors' recent Executive Roundtable examines the issues affecting government-funded R&D, we also look at new solutions for data storage and high-power electronics testing. Finally, the 2012 Global R&D Funding Forecast is a comprehensive analysis of the state of industrial research worldwide.
