NSF Seeking Public Comments on 2022-2026 Strategic Plan
The purpose of the Strategic Plan is to expand knowledge in science, engineering, and learning through investments in ideas, people, and infrastructure, and to advance the practice of research. Specifically, the agency is looking for comments on key elements of the plan, including the Vision, Core Values, Strategic Goals, and Strategic Objectives, as well as answers to three specific questions regarding how the organization can best fulfill its mission:
- What are the interests, values and emergent science and policy issues that the Strategic Plan should recognize?
- How can NSF help maintain US leadership in an evolving global research and education landscape?
- How can the plan best underscore the importance to the Nation of fundamental research and its broader impacts?
