UW-Madison No. 2 in federal R&D funding in 2006

From UW's eCALS blog:

"The UW-Madison was number two in terms of federal funding for research and development in academic science and engineering fields in FY 2006, according to university-reported data collected by the National Science Foundation (NSF) Survey of Research and Development Expenditures at Universities and Colleges.

Johns Hopkins University was first. However, it’s worth noting is that a significant portion of the funding going to Johns Hopkins is for classified research, which UW-Madison cannot accept. Wisconsin is in the top spot for institutions doing nonclassified funding."
