Basic Research

font decreasefont increase SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend
Basic research is systematic study directed toward greater knowledge or understanding of the fundamental aspects of phenomena and of observable facts without specific applications towards processes or products in mind. It includes all scientific study and experimentation directed toward increasing fundamental knowledge and understanding in those fields of the physical, engineering, environmental, and life sciences.
One of the peculiarities of basic research is the variety of paths which lead to productive advance. Statistically it is certain that important and highly useful discoveries will result from some fraction of the undertakings in basic science.
Today it is truer than ever that basic research is the pacemaker of technological progress.
