NSF- Strategic Plan for 2014-2018

Investing in science, engineering, and education for the nation's future, the National Science Foundatoin (NSF) has three strategic goals--Transform the frontiers of science and engineering; Stimulate innovation and address societal needs through research and education; and Excel as a Federal Science Agency--to guide the individual and collective efforts involved in achieving the agency’s mission. The first two goals embody the dual nature of NSF’s mission--(1) advancing the progress of science while (2) benefitting the Nation--and reflect the primary means by which NSF ensures the preeminence of the research and development (R&D) enterprise that is so essential to the Nation’s future.
