The long-awaited follow-up review of the NITRD program — the first since the 1999 PITAC report Investing in Our Future — has been released and is available from the White House’s Office of Science and Technology Policy.

The four big recommendations? Cribbed from the CRA:

  • Address demand for IT professionals
  • More, long, riskier research
  • Give priority to R&D connected with the physical world
  • More planning for NITRD
