Notes

Abstract: This article discusses a recent workshop on Transformative Research held at the headquarters of the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) in Arlington, Virginia. The authors led the two-day workshop to once again raise the question of the meaning of "transformative research" (TR). TR has come to encapsulate an increasingly central question across both U.S. and foreign science agencies: In a hypercompetitive global economy, with pressing challenges in many areas (energy, food, water, disease, etc.), how can we do a better job of picking research projects that are true game changers?
