Congress has signaled bipartisan support for basic and applied research via the United States Innovation and Competition Act (USICA) and the National Science Foundation for the Future Act. Stony Brook is taking proactive steps to prepare to compete for these federal sponsorship opportunities by creating focused “Tiger Teams.”  In this pilot program, ten focus areas for each team were determined by examining a section of the USICA that outlined the scope of the proposed new NSF Directorate.
