Collaborative Research: Industries of Ideas: A prototype system for measuring the effects of TIP investments on firms and jobs

The CHIPS and Science Act supports investments in key technologies to drive innovation, create jobs, and establish technology hubs across the United States. It also requires NSF’s Technology and Innovation Partnerships (TIP) Directorate to report on the impacts of such investments in ten broad strategic technology areas. Such reporting is challenging with current data and methods because new technologies are quickly evolving and difficult to identity and, especially, because no current means to systematically identify the industries, employers and workers which those technologies might affect exists. We propose the first end-to-end pilot test of a framework to address these challenges. The project will develop metrics, create a prototype dashboard for effective, accessible visualization and communication, establish plans and partnerships for scaling, and engage with various stakeholders through outreach and community engagement. The initial focus will be on the State of Ohio, a large, diverse state with the requisite data infrastructure in place and two rapidly emerging technology areas: Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Electric Vehicles (EV). The project provides a foundation for iterative development and future expansion with the ultimate goal of empowering NSF/TIP’s reporting and its grantees and stakeholders workforce development and evaluation needs.
