NIST Research/Collaboration Efforts Key to Innovation and Economic Growth
December 30, 2011
Innovation drives economic growth and creates skilled, high-wage jobs. To maintain a high standard of living for its citizens, the United States must continue to produce new, high quality products and we must sell them in the global marketplace. As Secretary John Bryson said recently, the U.S. must “Build it here and sell it everywhere.”
Commerce's National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) helps U.S. companies innovate and improve their global competitiveness by providing world class laboratory results and services, business and technology assistance, and research grants.
