Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Introduction of innovative research areas by the National Science Foundation (NSF) was discussed. The intent at NSF was to double its research-funding base over a five-year period, starting in FY01. In FY00 and FY01, the NSF launched three major initiatives for research in science and engineering. These included information technology research with funding levels of $90M in FY00 and $125M in FY01, nanoscale science and engineering with FY01 funding level of $53M, and biocomplexity in the environment with funding levels of $50M in FY00 and $25M in FY01.
