Title: Science and Engineering for the 21st Century: The Role of the National Science Foundation
Url: https://www.nsf.gov/nsb/documents/2003/start.htm
Publisher: National Science Board (U.S.)
Description: Released in April 2003, this timely and engaging report from the National Science Foundation outlines how the agency can best support the development of a robust infrastructure to support science and engineering research and development through the 21st century. The report contains an executive summary, five chapters, and several appendices. People with limited time may want to first consult the executive summary, as it offers a brief summary of the task force's findings and their basic recommendations. Some of their recommendations include addressing the need for midsize infrastructure (such as projects that cost several million dollars), increasing the support for large facility projects, and actively expanding education and training opportunities at new and existing research facilities. The conclusion notes that, "The challenge is how to maintain and revitalize an academic research infrastructure that has eroded over many years due to obsolescence and chronic under investment." This provocative report will be of great interest to persons in the applied sciences and engineering.
