Abstract : Increasingly within our scientific institutions, mere incremental advance is no longer sufficient. Scientists are being asked to be more radical, more willing to take risks, and more disposed to push the frontiers of knowledge—to become, in a word, transformative. The U.S. National Science Foundation, or NSF, is one of several agencies developing initiatives to promote so-called “transformative” research. In March 2012 the three of us led a two-day workshop at NSF Headquarters to once again raise the question of the meaning of “transformative research.” TR has come to encapsulate an increasingly central question across both U.S. and foreign science agencies: In a hypercompetitive global economy, with pressing challenges in many areas (energy, food, water, disease, etc.), how can we do a better job of picking research projects that are true game changers?
