Description

“Impact Assessment of the State of Texas Advanced Research Program” evaluated 1312 basic research projects funded at Texas universities since 1987. Economic impacts from principal investigators were compiled, and information was developed about the program’s ability to attract exceptional students to higher educational institutions and to retain these students as productive members of the state’s science and technology workforce. The role of ARP in current and future state science research strategy was addressed. Benchmarking with other state science programs were performed, and recommendations for potential changes in the ARP were provided.
