The National Science Board, the twenty-four-member policymaking arm of the National Science Foundation, has reaffirmed the agency's commitment as the primary supporter of basic research in the United States. The NSB released a 2-page statement, “In Support of Basic Research,” on June 2.
According to the statement, NSF is uniquely positioned to ensure that basic science, mathematics, and engineering research and education remain the keystone in the U.S. government's efforts to “revitalize the nation and insure its well being.”
