The National Science Foundation


The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency funding approximately 24% of all federally supported basic research conducted by America’s colleges and universities. The University of California, Berkeley, UC San Francisco and Stanford University are collaborating on an educational program (NSF iCorps) aimed at commercializing university research and fostering innovation locally and nationally, thanks to a three-year, $3.75 million NSF grant. This Bay Area “node” was established to increase the impact of NSF-funded research by setting up innovation ecosystems within universities to train the next generation of entrepreneurs, encourage partnerships between academia and industry, and commercialize science and technology.
