- The NSF received a 6.8% increase over the FY07 request.
- Research and Related Activities: 7.7%.
- Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE): 9.0%.
- Computing and Communication Foundation (CCF): A whopping 21.4%.
Also NSF would have a new agency wide program on Cyber-Enabled Discover and Innovation (CDI) to "Broaden the Nation's capability for innovation by developing a new generation of computationally based discovery concepts and tools to deal with complex, data-rich, and interacting systems."
The big caveat: The budget has to survive the congressional appropriation process.
