"Cover Story" piece on the status of research and development (R & D) in Maine. Gov. Angus King, in his Jan. 22 State of the State speech, called R & D "our ticket to the next phase of economic life in Maine." The state's investment in R & D has jumped from $2 million in 1994 to $32 million last year. Now, King's administration is calling for a four-fold increase in R & D spending by 2010 and a 50 percent increase in the adult population holding college degrees in the same period. But currently, Maine is ranked 47th in federal R & D dollars per capita. With special focus on Karl Hoose, 38, owner of Applied Thermal Sciences in Sanford, who has lined up more than $15 million in government R & D contracts and employs a staff of 22 scientists and engineers; Tom Maciag, a molecular biologist, who is director of the Maine Medical Center Research Institute in Scarborough; and Dan Dwyer, vice president for research at the University of Maine at Orono.
