We are deeply saddened by the loss of W. Carl Lineberger, our friend and former National Science Board colleague, who passed away on October 17th. Carl's legacy will live on through his scientific contributions, the standard he set for NSB collegiality and industriousness, and in the many tangible developments at NSF that can be traced to his influence.

Business funding for university research grew faster than federal funding in 2021, according to the first of the 2024 Indicators reports, which are published by the Board and prepared by the National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics under the Board's guidance.

https://www.nsf.gov/nsb/news/news_summ.jsp?cntn_id=308287

The report shows how funding varies by research topic, locates highly funded universities, compares public institutions to private, and identifies trends in how institutions are training future workforces. More stats:

1. The federal government provided nearly 55% of all funds for academic research in 2021, down from 61% in 2012.

2. More U.S. trained women joined the science and engineering doctoral academic workforce than men in 2021.

3. The number of Black, Hispanic, and American Indian or Alaska Native individuals who participated in academic science and engineering education grew from 2006 to 2021.

4. In the last 30 years, science and engineering doctorate holders made an employment shift from the academic to the for-profit business sector.
