Higher Education R&D Expenditures Resume Slow Growth in FY 2013 [4 February 2015]


[full-text, 6 pages]


University spending on research and development in all fields totaled $67.2 billion [2] in FY 2013, according to data from the National Science Foundation (NSF) Higher Education Research and Development (HERD) Survey (table 1). When adjusted for inflation, higher education R&D increased by less than half a percent in FY 2013 (figure 1). This overall amount represents the reported totals from 891 degree-granting institutions that spent at least $150,000 in R&D in the previous fiscal year. The remainder of this InfoBrief focuses on the 645 institutions included in the full version of the survey (standard form) that reported at least $1 million in R&D during their previous fiscal year and who contributed 99.8% of the total R&D expenditures reported in FY 2013.
