NSF-funded report envisions future of multidisciplinary engineering research centers

July 11, 2017

In May, the National Academies published A New Vision for Center-Based Engineering Research (2017), the result of an NSF-funded study.

The report identifies and recommends strategies to enable NSF multidisciplinary engineering research centers to continue addressing key research, education, and innovation needs of the United States in a changing global context.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency that supports fundamental research and education across all fields of science and engineering. In fiscal year (FY) 2018, its budget is $7.8 billion. NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and other institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 50,000 competitive proposals for funding and makes about 12,000 new funding awards.
