1 Back to the FutureThe Increasing Importance of the States in Setting the Research Agenda Lecture in the Series Defining Values of Research and Technology: The University's Changing Role Center for Advanced Study University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, IL April 11, 2001

2 Land Grant Institutions Founding Principles The Universities Were Founded to: –Educate a Broad Workforce and Citizenry –Perform Research to Create More Productive Economy –Provide Services to the Economic Creators Clear Coupling to Economy: –Agriculture –Manufacturing –Embedded in a Liberal Arts Education Morrill Act –Federal Support for State Functions

3 The Land Grant Values are Reflected in the University of Illinois Seal

4 The Critical Role of Federal Funding in Creating the Information Economy Source: Brooks-Sutherland Report (1995)

5 The Critical Role of Federal Funding in Creating the Information Economy Source: Brooks-Sutherland Report (1995)

6 PITAC Findings and Recommendations Federal Funding Has: –Seeded High-Risk Research –Yielded Many Billion-Dollar Industries –Trained Most of Our Leading IT Researchers –Created Ideas Which Freely Flow From Universities and National Labs to Existing and New Companies The United States Must Not Only Continue, but Also Substantially Increase, Long-term Fundamental Information Technology Research Programs in Universities

7 Large Federal Programs Can Make Major Changes in Infrastructure NSF Supercomputer Centers Program –Access to Supercomputers –Large Dataset Archive –NSFnet –Scientific Visualization and Virtual Reality –The Web Browser and Server Software Partnerships in Advanced Computational Infrastructure (PACI) –Access Grid –Superclusters –User Portals –Optical and International Networks –Distributed Terascale Facility

8 Characteristics of PACI Federal Government is Primary Fund Source –Defines the Program, Holds the Competition –Evaluates the Progress State Supports Fed Initiative Thru Cost Sharing –Major Source for Staff Salary –Extra Funds for New Buildings Industrial Partners Leverage Federal Funding: –Proprietary Projects Which Led to New Capabilities –Funds for New Initiatives –Focus on Large Companies Using Information Tech. Community Outreach Created New Organizations –CCnet

9 Private Donors Can Link Public Universities, Industry, and Federal Funds UIUC Beckman Institute –$30M Private Donor –Recurring State Operational Funds –New Building and Facilities –Enhances Federal Funding Opportunities –Active Tech Transfer –Strong Overlap with NCSA/Alliance Biological Intelligence Human-Computer Intelligent Interaction Molecular and Electronic Nanostructures

10 Governor Davis Created New Institutes for Science, Innovation, and Tech Transfer UCSB UCLA The California NanoSystems Institute UCSF UCB The California Institute for Bioengineering, Biotechnology, and Quantitative Biomedical Research UCI UCSD The California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology The Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society (Proposed-UCB, UCD, UCSC, UCM) UCSC

11 California Institutes Characteristics State Provides Core Funding –Defined the Overall Structure –Allowed UC Campuses to Choose Research Topics –Holds the Competition –Funds for New Buildings and Equipment –Major Source for Staff Salary (proposed) Requirement for 2:1 Cost Sharing –State Seeks Leverage –Increase Competitiveness for Federal Grants –Tight Coupling with Industry

12 UC San Diego and UC Irvine California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology New Funding Model (4 Years) –State $100M –Industry $140M –Private $30 M –Campus $30M –Federal $ M (anticipated) –Total $ M Institute Directors –Larry Smarr (UCSD), Institute Director –Ron Graham (UCSD), Institute Chief Scientist –Ramesh Rao, UCSD Campus Director –Peter Rentzepis, UCI Campus Director

13 Wireless Access--Anywhere, Anytime Broadband to the Home and Small Businesses Vast Increase in Internet End Points –Embedded Processors –Sensors and Actuators –Information Appliances Highly Parallel Light Waves Through Fiber Emergence of a Distributed Planetary Computer –Storage of Data Everywhere –Scalable Computing Power Beyond Todays Internet
