... 78 TOWARD NEW NAVAL PLATFORMS responsibility to transition and adapt S&T innovations across a wide spectrum for use in the NE enterprise. Additionally, the framework is seen as a way to inform choices about when resources should be devoted to monitoring S&T developments within and outside the Navy (e.g., in DOD generally and in the commercial sectors of the United States and abroad)

... 80 TOWARD NEW NAVAL PLATFORMS same basic framework can be used strategically for making choices both within and across the NNR-NE portfolio, as exemplified in Table 6-2. The committee therefore recommends that ONR should adopt a "lead, leverage, and monitor" framework for the strategic programming, prioritization, and integration of NNR-NE investments both within and across the R&D, workforce, and infrastructure pillars (Recommendation 6-1)

... SUMMARY ASSESSMENT AND ADVICE 81 by leading metrics, such as the number of undergraduate students choosing majors in NE and related disciplines, to provide an earlier indication of program successes, opportunities, and challenges. Additional metrics could assist in the evaluation of the NNR-NE portfolio: • Research Potential: The number of graduate students (Ph.D., master's)
