Publié le 24 mars 2014, par Thérèse Hameau


The President’s 2015 Budget proposes to invest $2.6 billion in research infrastructure, defined as support for research and development (R&D) facilities construction, renovation, and the purchase of major capital equipment for R&D. The Committee on Science of the National Science and Technology Council is monitoring the progress of research facilities construction and maintenance as well as procurement of major instrumentation. The Committee’s work is informed by the results of the National Science Foundation’s survey of science and engineering facilities at academic institutions, last conducted in fiscal year (FY) 2011 and released in early 2013, which provides a comprehensive national assessment of academic research infrastructure. The Committee’s work will also be informed by ongoing dialogue between Federal agencies on the state of research infrastructure in Federal intramural and contractor‐operated facilities.
