  1. The Endless Frontier in Science and Technology:Role of the United States and Purdue October 1, 2007 Charles O. Rutledge, Ph.D. Vice President for Research Pankaj Sharma, Ph.D. Associate Director, Discovery Park

  2. My visit to China

  3. Outline • Evolution of Science, Technology, and Policy • Pre-War, During War, Post-war • Current Infrastructure • Think Tanks, Funding Agencies, National Labs, Regulatory Agencies, Associations, Foundations, Corporations, Donors • Purdue • Past, Present, Future

  4. Pre-World War II (1787-1940) • 1787: The Constitutional Convention • 1807: Survey of Coast • 1862: The Department of Agriculture and the Land Grant College Act • 1870: United States Weather Service • 1879: U.S. Geological Survey • 1887: National Institutes of Health • 1916: Naval Research Laboratory • 1931: Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory • 1937: National Cancer Institute George Washington 1st U.S. President 1789-1797 Abraham Lincoln 16th U.S. President 1861-1865

  5. World War II • 1940-1941National Defense Research Committee and Office of Scientific Research and Defense • 1940-1945Manhattan Project National Defense Research Committee 1st Official Meeting on July 2, 1940

  6. Moving Forward in the Post-war Era November 1944: President Roosevelt’s letter to Dr. Vannevar Bush asked the following: • What scientific contributions have been made during the war? • What can be done now in the war of science against disease? • What can the government do to aid research activities? • Can an effective program be proposed for the discovery and development of scientific talent in American youth? Franklin D. Roosevelt 32nd U.S. President1933-1945

  7. Moving Forward in the Post-war Era July 1945: Dr. Vannevar Bush provided the following recommendations: Scientific contributions • Penicillin, radar, better agricultural products, jobs in new industries (radio, air conditioning, rayon, synthetic fibers/rubber, plastics) • More abundant food supply, better living, more leisure, longer life, and better health War of science against disease • Extend financial support for basic medical research in medical schools and universities. Aid for research activities • More and better scientific research is essential for our goal of full employment. • Basic research should be strengthened by use of public funds. • Create science advisory board to advise executive/legislative branches of government. • Allow deduction of R&D expenditures for industry research. • Promote international flow of scientific information. Developing scientific talent • For every boy or girl shall know that, if s/he shows that s/he has what it takes, the sky is the limit. • Remove barriers for receiving higher education. • Provide reasonable number of scholarships and fellowships for advanced training and fundamental research. • Create a National Research Foundation. Dr. Vannevar Bush

  8. Post-World War II • 1946: Office of Naval Research • 1946: Department of Energy • 1947: National Laboratories • 1950: National Science Foundation • 1954: President’s Science Advisory Committee • 1980: Bayh-Dole Act • 1989: End of the Cold War • 1989-2000: Steps Toward Interdisciplinary Research Birch Bayh II U.S. Senator from Indiana 1963-1981 Bob Dole U.S. Senator from Kansas 1969-1996

  9. Recent Trends (2000 – today) Challenges Driving Interdisciplinary Research • The inherent complexity of Nature and Society • The drive to explore basic research problems at the interfaces of disciplines • The need to solve societal problems • The stimulus of generative technologies

  10. Policy combined with infrastructure provides an endless frontier for science and technology. Science, Technology, and Policy An infrastructure enables us to undertake challenges and explore new avenues. Endless frontier of science and technology Infrastructure Policy

  11. Infrastructure: Think Tanks The National Academies Advisors to the Nation on Science, Engineering and Medicine • National Academy of Sciences (1863) • National Research Council (1916) • National Academy of Engineering (1964) • Institute of Medicine (1970)
