The National Science Foundation: A Foundation for Innovation

A great new video posted last week by the National Science Foundation documenting the power of basic research to spur innovation and the economy.

“What really causes economic growth is really innovation. So how do we get more of it? We invest in basic research. And that’s as simple as that.” Gary Hendrix, Founder, Symantec Corporation.

This is an excellent way to spend 5 minutes and feel good about our roles in research administration and our relationship to science and basic research.
