Overview Edit

With this Information Technology for the Twenty First Century (IT2) initiative, the Federal Government is making an important re-commitment to fundamental research in information technology. The IT2 initiative proposes $366 million in increased investments in computing, information, and communications research and development (R&D) to help expand the knowledge base in fundamental information science, advance the Nation's capabilities in cutting-edge research, and train the next generation of researchers who will sustain the Information revolution well into the 21st Century.

Six federal agencies are participating in the IT2 initiative: DOD, DOE, NASA, NIH, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and NSF. Each has developed new programs or expanded existing ones to meet the objectives of IT2.
