Promoting Innovation and Economic Growth

With community input, NSF designed two new solicitations to encourage translation of new knowledge to economic or societal impact:

Accelerating Innovation Research (AIR), and

Partnerships for Innovation (PFI)

Promote the commercialization of promising technologies:

The Budget proposes $12 million for the National Science Foundation (NSF) for a new Innovation Ecosystem in which universities partner with other institutions to increase the impact of the most promising innovations through commercialization, industry alliances, and start-up formation.
