The first six sections of this report are based on data provided by each Texas public university and health-related institution for Fiscal Year (FY) 2001, September 1, 2000 through August 31, 2001. Data in these sections, which include an overview, a summary of major findings, summary data, and institutional and historical data, show that total reported research expenditures increased 10.4% over FY 2000. Research expenditures in FY 2001 were $1,769,660,434. Total research expenditures have increased by 84.5% since FY 1991. Royalties, licensing fees, or other transactions involving intellectual property produced through research generated $30,102,288, a 7% increase over the total received in FY 2000. The federal government provided 55.4% of the research funds expended, equal to the government's share in FY 2000. Scientific disciplines benefiting from the largest research expenditures include medical sciences, biological and other life sciences, engineering, and environmental sciences. Funding for medical sciences rose by 14.1% in FY 2001 over the previous year's total. The seventh section of the report is based on data from the National Science Foundation for FY 1999. These data show that Texas institutions ranked sixth in federal obligations for science and engineering, and that the National Institutes of Health provides 60% of the federal research support for science and engineering to Texas higher education institutions. Texas institutions ranked third in total research expenditures for FY 1999, and eight Texas institutions accounted for 78.9% of the federal obligations for science and engineering to Texas higher education institutions in FY 1999.
