Scientific research conducted at Harvard University is a key driver of the Greater Boston economy.  Harvard attracts federal funding for Harvard-based research, and local companies founded by Harvard researchers or based on discoveries made in Harvard labs, receive venture capital from around the world. 

In addition to the economic benefits that Harvard’s science initiatives bring to Greater Boston, the University recognizes that exposing students to the latest developments in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) is critical to stay competitive in a 21st century global economy.  As one of the nation’s leading research universities and the birthplace of innovations that made the world a better, healthier place, Harvard is well equipped to enrich STEM programs for students and learners of all ages. The university hosts a number of programs with local schools, as well as lectures, events, and opportunities for the greater public to take advantage of Harvard’s science resources.
