Measuring the Impacts of Federal Investments in Research: A Workshop Summary Pdf

Measuring the Impacts of Federal Investments in Research: A Workshop Summary Pdf The enactment of this America COMPETES Act in 2006 (and its reauthorization in 2010), the growth in research expenditures under the 2009 American Retrieval and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), also President Obama’s general emphasis on the participation of science and technology to economic expansion have heightened interest in the function of scientific and technology research in generating jobs, producing innovative technology, spawning new businesses, improving wellness , and generating other economic and societal benefits. In addition to this attention has come a renewed emphasis on a query that’s been requested for decades: Could the consequences and practical advantages of research to society be measured either quantitatively or qualitatively?

On April 18-19, 2011, the Board on Science, Technology, and Economic Policy (STEP) and the Committee on Science, Engineering and Public Policy (COSEPUP) of the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, and the Institute of Medicine, held a workshop to examine that issue. The workshop sought to build the selection of work that’s been performed in measuring research results and to offer a forum to examine its method. The workshop was inspired by a 2009 letter by Congressman Rush Holt (D-New Jersey). He asked the National Academies to start looking into a variety of complex and interconnected problems, like the short-term and long-term economic and non-economic effect of national research funding, variables that determine whether federally funded research discoveries lead to economic gains, and quantification of these consequences of research on federal safety , the environment, health, schooling , public wellbeing, and decision making.

Measuring the Impacts of Federal Investments in Research provides the crucial observations and suggestions made by the speakers in the workshop and through the talks that followed the formal presentations.
