Hi, just playing our 2nd game, and we've chosen the house mat, what's the point of the short supply technology? Why would i want to choose that one? Also when you get the research boost does the token stay there on the track until it is complete? And when it gets to X2 do you add another token to another track or do you get X2 RP, of the 1st chosen track? Thanks.
Edit. Shared research, is this optional or do you have to do it?

Short Supply gives you 7 points to complete. And when you complete research tracks you score points and no longer use the ability of the track, which in this case is a bad ability.

The Research Boost token stays until either the player's track is complete OR you complete the Research Boost track. And when you get to the 2X, you Gain another token to place on a track.

Shared Research in not optional.

Thanks for playing!

Thanks very much for the reply. As I was playing I realised that once I'd got the short supply to complete the track asap, I'm right in thinking you can't make any blends with the short supply activated, as your only rolling 4/3 dice?
Oh just thought, unless you get a couple of flavour dice the round before? Is Thais correct? Thanks

Yep, very true on both points. Flavor can help, but you're pretty much stuck researching as fast as possible, which is risky, but less so later in the game with a few dice-manipulation abilities.

Shared Research must be executed if it is available?

Good thing to know.
