STAR Metrics Portfolio Explorer

Brief overview
At the request of the White House and Congress, the STAR Metrics (Science and Technology for America’s Reinvestment: Measuring the Effects of Research on Innovation) Portfolio Explorer Project serves as a central repository for examining federal R&D investments within the U.S. More specifically, this project utilizes a number of methods, modeling, and data to understand scientific practice.

STAR METRICS organizes the data in two levels. Level I includes data at the establishment level on labor outputs; level II captures the network of R&D activity between the public and private sector. Level II connects sources of funding, participants, and their institutional affiliations, and products.
