Investing in Science, Engineering, and Education for the Nation's Future: NSF Strategic Plan for 2014 - 2018

NSF's new Strategic Plan, Investing in Science, Engineering, and Education for the Nation's Future: NSF Strategic Plan for 2014 - 2018, was released on March 10, 2014. It lays out two strategic goals that embody the dual nature of NSF's mission to advance the progress of science while benefitting the Nation: Transform the Frontiers of Science and Engineering and Stimulate Innovation and Address Societal Needs through Research and Education. A third goal, Excel as a Federal Science Agency, directs NSF to hold itself accountable for achieving excellence in carrying out its mission. This goal structure enables NSF to link its investments to longer-term outcomes. To bridge the gap between these strategic goals and measurable outputs, the Strategic Plan establishes a set of strategic objectives for each strategic goal.
