  • Abstract and presentation slides.
  • Since its establishment in 1950, the National Science Foundation (NSF) has funded discoveries and innovations that have transformed our lives, from the Internet to Google to MRI machines. In this session, I will provide an overview of NSF’s first new directorate in more than three decades, the Directorate for Technology, Innovation and Partnerships (TIP), describing how this directorate is advancing critical technologies, accelerating the translation of these technologies from the lab to society, addressing pressing economic challenges, and engaging the Nation’s broad and diverse population in this work. For example, a flagship investment led by TIP, the NSF Regional Innovation Engines, constitutes a bold new initiative to spark regional-scale innovation ecosystems throughout the country, and particularly in those parts that have not benefited from the technological booms of the last several decades. Of particular note, I will describe the essential role that success metrics transcending traditional measures of research productivity will play in realizing this vision of expanding the nation’s research and innovation ecosystem, and ultimately ensuring the U.S. remains in the vanguard of competitiveness for decades to come.
