National Science Foundation Technology Innovation Partnership Evaluation (In Progress)



The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency established in 1950 by Congress "to promote the progress of science; to advance the national health, prosperity, and welfare; to secure the national defense." NSF supports research and the fields of fundamental science and engineering, except for medical sciences, and helps the United States drive leading discoveries. In March 2022, NSF established the Directorate for Technology, Innovation and Partnerships (TIP). TIP was created to focus on significant challenges and opportunities across the entire science and engineering enterprise and to strengthen and scale the critical research that will drive future technologies and solutions.


The NSF requires an assessment of the organizational and management structure of the NSF's Directorate for Technology, Innovation and Partnerships.

The Academy will

  • Evaluate and make recommendations to efficiently and effectively implement the Directorate for Technology, Innovation, and Partnerships; and
  • Evaluate and make recommendations to ensure coordination of the Directorate for Technology, Innovation, and Partnerships with other directorates and offices of the Foundation and other Federal agencies.
