Dr. Singerman asked which activities or policies of Federal funders either hinder or help commercialization activities. Dr. Proenza noted that certain tax policies, such as how tax-exempt facilities can be used, were too restrictive and that it was time to make the R&D tax credit for industry permanent. He added that the mutual finger-pointing by universities and industries over technology transfer issues should stop.
“Of course there are cultural differences, but there are no data to suggest that industry does any better at commercializing technologies than academia,” Dr. Proenza said. There’s plenty of non-core but useful technology sitting on shelves; we can actually help some industries use it if they take the time to talk with us.”

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.
The NGSS offer a detailed description of the key scientific ideas and practices that all students should learn by the time they graduate from high school. The standards are based largely on the 2011 National Research Council report A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas.
