TIP Directorate to accelerate breakthrough technologies, societal and economic advances

NSF’s new directorate, Technology, Innovation and Partnerships, TIP, will harness the geography of innovation at speed and scale.  With the landscape for global competition shifting, Americans have an opportunity to optimize the research enterprise for U.S. competitiveness — for the future.  TIP will help scale use-inspired research and how we translate results. TIP will tap and foster STEM talent from the diverse range of U.S. places and people. That means revitalizing communities left behind, paths to STEM education, high wage jobs, and fields of dreams everywhere. This is the first step toward new inventions and the next era of American possibilities.  Click here to read more.
