This talk will begin with a brief description of the National Science Foundation’s organization, and it’s role in US Government-funded R&D. The two Geotechnical Engineering programs, as well as related programs, will be described and examples given of past and current research. Methods used to direct the focus of NSF -funded research will be discussed. The speaker will then provide his thoughts on priority areas of Geotechnical Engineering research, including areas related to energy, global climate change, and sustainability. This will lead to a discussion of opportunities and mechanisms for international collaborations, with particular reference to Cambridge –US cooperation.
