According to recent survey results published by the National Science Foundation (NSF), university spending on research and development (R&D) in all fields totaled $65.8 billion in fiscal year (FY) 2012. After adjusting for inflation, higher education R&D declined by 1 percent in FY 2012. This represents the first constant-dollar decline since FY 1974 and ends a period of modest growth in higher education R&D during ...
