Federal Investment in Research and Development at the Nation's Universities and Colleges
To provide an empirical basis for assessing the federal investment in university-based research and development (R&D), RAND compiled a comprehensive list of federal R&D funds going to every university and college in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico using its RaDiUS database and analyzed the resulting data by state and a variety of relevant institutional characteristics (public versus private, including and excluding medical schools, etc.). The report is intended as a reference document for national, regional, state, and university decisionmakers and planners interested in assessing the relative competitiveness of particular university systems and individual campuses in obtaining federal R&D funds. It is also intended to stimulate further analysis of trends, priorities, and resource allocations involving federally funded R&D.
