Building a sustainable energy future : U.S. actions for an effective energy economy transformation by National Science Board (U.S.)( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The United States faces a critical challenge to transform our current fossil fuel based energy economy to a stable and sustainable energy economy. This transformation must be achieved in a timely manner to increase U.S. energy independence, enhance environmental stewardship and reduce energy and carbon intensity, and generate continued economic growth. In this report, the National Science Board (Board) offers key findings, recommendations to the U.S. Government, and guidance to the National Science Foundation (NSF). Collectively, these actions will initiate and sustain a transformation to a sustainable energy economy. The following six topics of key findings support and form the basis of the Board's recommendations and guidance: Finding 1: U.S. Government leadership and coordination: A comprehensive coordinated Federal strategy is required for sustainable energy initiatives. Finding 2: R & D investment: Private and Federal support for sustainable energy R & D is inadequate. Finding 3: Policy development: The U.S. energy economy is carbon-intensive and does not adequately value the environment as a public good. Finding 4: Energy education and workforce: Human capital development in the sustainable energy sector is vital. Finding 5: Global cooperation: Limited international engagement and collaboration inhibits progress on sustainable energy solutions. Finding 6: Energy awareness and action: Strong public consensus and support for sustainable energy actions are needed to achieve a national transformation to a sustainable energy economy."--Excerpted from Executive summary, p. 1

Basic research in the mission agencies : agency perspectives on the conduct and support of basic research by National Science Board (U.S.)( Book )

6 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The National Science Board (NSB), the policymaking body of the National Science Foundation (NSF), has among its responsibilities 'to evaluate the status and needs of the various sciences and to take into consideration the results of such evaluations in correlating the research and educational programs undertaken or supported by the Foundation with programs, projects, and studies undertaken by agencies of the Federal Government, by individuals, and by public and private research groups.' Recent Board reports have dealt with the Nation's total research and development effort and the Federal Government's role in this effort. This tenth Board report focuses on the basic research that is supported by the mission agencies of the Federal Government

Graduate education : parameters for public policy by National Science Board (U.S.)( Book )

13 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this report is to characterize American graduate education in the 1960s and to identify many of the issues that will determine the character, magnitude, and direction of graduate education, especially in the sciences and engineering, during the next decade. In Chapter 1, Dimensions of Graduate Education, some of the salient features of institutional demography are presented, including: the number of graduate institutions, their types, locations, and transformations; the distribution of graduate enrollment; the number and types of degrees awarded; and representative projections to 1980-81. Chapter 2, Correlates of Quality, reviews a number of factors that appear to be generally associated with quality either of institutions or departments, including: magnitude of graduate program, institutional funding, baccalaureate origins of doctorates, freshman admission selectivity, selection of institution by graduate fellowship recipients, doctoral awards per faculty member and per student, faculty compensation and structure, student-faculty ratio, and minimum size. In Chapter 3, Financial Perspectives, financial patterns and trends in universities are examined. Particular emphasis is placed on the research role in graduate education, essential characteristics of academic accounting practice, and the inherent cost of graduate education in relation to higher education as a whole. The Summary lists some of the principal conclusions. (Af)

Science & engineering indicators - 1989 by National Science Board (U.S.)( Book )

13 editions published between 1987 and 2004 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume was written to reflect an increased awareness of the complementary roles played by science and engineering research and engineering in creating both new knowledge and new technological products and processes. It was designed to provide a broad base of quantitative information about the structure and function of science and technology in the United States in order to inform national policymakers who must allocate resources to these activities. Many feel that it is essential to this process that policymakers understand indicators well enough to properly support basic research, applied research and development, innovation and education. Profiles include: (1) "Precollege Science and Mathematics Education"; (2) "Higher Education for Scientists and Engineers"; (3) "Science and Engineering Workforce"; (4) "Resources for R & D and Basic Research"; (5) "Academic R & D and Basic Research: Patterns of Performance"; (6) "Industrial Research and Technological Innovation"; (7) "International Markets for U.S. Technology"; and (8) "Public Attitudes toward Science and Technology." Appendices include statistical tables, contributors and reviewers. (CW)
