Science means innovation
Date:4/2/2012

On March 29, 2012, the National Science Foundation (NSF) conducted a bipartisan congressional briefing sponsored by the Coalition for National Science Funding and hosted by the Congressional Research and Development Caucus and its Co-Chairs Rush Holt (NJ-12) and Judy Biggert (IL-13) and special guests Representatives Daniel Lipinski (IL-3) and Sheila Jackson Lee (TX-18).

"For 60 years, NSF has played a central role in innovation by catalyzing the development of fundamental ideas in science and engineering and supporting the people who generate them," said NSF Director Subra Suresh. "NSF remains the nation's engine of innovation, the fuel for which is fundamental research. NSF's mission positions it to stimulate innovative research that connects the science and engineering enterprise with potential economic, societal and educational benefits."

NSF supports a broad range of fundamental science and engineering research. Through a series of innovation programs, NSF continues to catalyze the transformation of fundamental research efforts into market reality and nurture the commercialization of technology, creating high-quality jobs and economic growth. These NSF programs leverage partnerships with the private sector in order to strengthen the nation's innovation ecosystem, enhancing America's global economic competitiveness.

"Let me congratulate the NSF for acknowledging the vitality of science in America. As a former Member of the House Science Committee, I always say that science is the work of the 21st century. We are now in the 21st century," said Rep. Lee at the briefing.

Rep. Lipinski said, "We need to do the best that we can to leverage the research in this country and translate it into new products, new businesses and new jobs. The NSF has a number of programs to do this: to make research discoveries that create innovations and help spur the economy."

The briefing highlighted NSF-supported efforts, representing ac
