NASA created a set of 14 draft technology roadmaps in 2010 to guide the development of space technologies. In 2015, NASA issued a revised set of roadmaps. A significant new aspect of the update has been the effort to assess the relevance of the technologies by listing the enabling and enhancing technologies for specific design reference missions (DRMs) from the Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate and the Science Mission Directorate. NASA Space Technology Roadmaps and Priorities Revisited prioritizes new technologies in the 2015 roadmaps and recommends a methodology for conducting independent reviews of future updates to NASA’s space technology roadmaps, which are expected to occur every 4 years.
The mission of EPSCoR is to advance excellence in science and engineering research and education in order to achieve sustainable increases in research, education, and training capacity and competitiveness that will enable EPSCoR jurisdictions to have increased engagement in areas supported by the NSF.
In order to advance its mission and fulfill a request from Congress, NIH developed the NIH-Wide Strategic Plan, Fiscal Years 2016–2020: Turning Discovery Into Health. This plan outlines a vision for biomedical research to capitalize on new opportunities for scientific exploration and address new challenges for human health. Developed with input from hundreds of stakeholders and scientific advisers, and in collaboration with leadership and staff of NIH’s Institutes, Centers, and Offices, the plan is designed to complement the ICOs’ individual strategic plans, which are aligned with their congressionally mandated missions.
A publication from the National Science Board, Science and Engineering Indicators, is the premier source of information on the U.S. and international science and engineering enterprise, including information on topics like education; workforce; national and international R&D trends; academic R&D; industry, technology, and the global marketplace; public attitudes and understanding, and state performance.
A fact sheet on on the Blue Waters petascale computing project--a National Science Foundation (NSF) supported facility that is committed to ensuring access for researchers across the U.S. in alignment with the NSF EPSCoR program.
A report to the National Science Foundation (NSF) on the EPSCoR 2030 Workshop to to the National Science Foundation, held in Washington D.C. on January 19-20, 2012. The two-day workshop produced observations about the value of the NSF program and recommended programmatic changes to be made both by NSF and EPSCoR states that will ultimately work to enhance EPSCoR’s effectiveness.
A report to the National Science Foundation (NSF) on the “EPSCoR 2020: Expanding State Participation in Research in the 21st Century -- A New Vision for the Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research” workshop held on June 15-16, 2006 in Arlington, Virginia. This landmark workshop was convened at the request of the NSF to articulate a new vision for the NSF EPSCoR Initiative.
On Wednesday, December 10th, 2014, the USDA hosted a webinar intended to serve as an overview of Food and Agricultural Science Enhancement (FASE) Grants and their role in the Department of Agriculture's Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) program.
