Sources & Methodology:
- Sponsored Project Awards data comes from UC Berkeley's Sponsored Projects Office (SPO). For a more detailed look at research awards data, try SPO's Sponsored Projects Funding dashboard.
- National Science Foundation data on research and development expenditures is currently available through the WebCASPAR system's NSF Higher Education Research and Development Survey database. Note that the NSF data on the Peer Comparison page represents R&D expenditures, while all other pages in this dashboard show sponsored project awards.
- All of the sponsored project awards data shown in this dashboard appears as project period funding, where an entire award (including future years) reports in the fiscal year of its begin date. UC Berkeley's fiscal year runs from July 1 - June 30. The data in this dashboard is not adjusted for inflation.
- Activity types are the major functions of an institution. 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. Applied research is the practical application of science, accessing and using accumulated theories, knowledge, methods, and techniques, for a specific, state-, business-, or client-driven purpose. Training is the professional and scientific development of enrolled Berkeley undergraduate and graduate students. Instruction is funding supporting teaching of enrolled Berkeley undergraduate students. Services include K-12, community, and other outreach of general benefit to the public.
- Direct sponsor class is the highest level of sponsor classification of the agency or organization awarding the sponsored project funds directly to Berkeley. Federal refers to federal government agencies. Industry is funding from foreign and domestic corporate for-profit sources. Non-federal governmental agencies include state (other than CA), local, and foreign government agencies. Not for profit agencies include foreign and domestic foundations, charitable organizations, and non-UC institutions of higher education. University of California funding is from other UC campuses and the Office of the President, and is usually awarded to Berkeley as a sub-award from a sponsor in a different class.
Notes on Other Available Data:
- Berkeley's Sponsored Project Office publishes several dashboards related to sponsored project proposals and awards. SPO also publishes an annual report with additional detail.
- The major source for peer comparison data is the National Science Foundation's NSF Higher Education Research and Development Survey dataset, which you can currently access via the WebCASPAR system.
