America’s economic competitiveness is tied directly to the pace of scientific and technological discovery, which requires sustained, long-term support as well as agility. To help the U.S. stay at the forefront of research and innovation — and maintain its leadership in the global economy — the National Science Foundation (NSF) Directorate for Engineering launched the Engineering Research Visioning Alliance (ERVA), the first engineering research visioning organization of its kind.
ERVA enables impact on national research priorities by convening diverse minds and voices from across the nation to identify emerging trends and solutions. As a neutral, inclusive partnership, ERVA breeds connectivity that drives timely translation of identified needs into research objectives, directly supporting the nation’s security and its ability to compete in a rapidly changing international economy.
