ScienceWorksForU.S.

ScienceWorksForU.S. is a joint project of The Science Coalition, the Association of American Universities and the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities to inform policymakers and the public of the devastating impact that sequestration is having on federally funded scientific research.

Universities conduct the majority of basic scientific and medical research in the United States and, as such, are ground zero for the discovery and innovation that fuels the economy, as well as for the education of future scientists, engineers, doctors, teachers and entrepreneurs.

Innovation Deficit

Close the Innovation Deficit is an effort by the business, higher education, scientific, and high-tech manufacturing communities who are concerned about cuts and stagnating federal investments in research and higher education at a time when other nations are investing heavily in these areas. The Science Coalition supports the effort to Close the Innovation Deficit and believes sustained federal investments in research and higher education are necessary to develop the ideas, people, and innovations that power our economy, create jobs, improve health, and strengthen our national security.

SCIENCE 2034

What does science hold for the future? SCIENCE 2034 is an initiative by The Science Coalition to mark our 20th anniversary by looking forward 20 years and focusing on the possibilities of the future.

While we don’t know what the next “Big Thing” will be, we can make some educated predictions about how well-funded scientific research might change our lives and our world. At www.Science2034.org we ask scientists, policymakers and thought leaders to weigh in and tell us what they think science will enable 20 years from now and what that will mean to individuals, society and the world.

The Science Coalition

Congresswoman Anna Eshoo (D-CA)

September 16, 2009

The Science Coalition today gave Congresswoman Anna Eshoo its “Champion of Science” award in recognition of her strong commitment and continued advocacy for basic research funding. “Representing much of Silicon Valley and several research institutions, Congresswoman Eshoo understands the significant role basic research plays both in advancing our knowledge in critical areas like health care and energy and in driving our economy,” said Dr. Philip Pizzo, Dean, Stanford School of Medicine.

Throughout her 16-year career representing California’s 14th congressional district, Rep. Eshoo has worked tirelessly to promote American competitiveness and innovation. In 2005, the Congresswoman introduced the Innovation Agenda - A Commitment to Competitiveness to Keep America #1, which promoted an increased investment in research and development and the creation of the Advanced Research Projects Agency for Energy. “I know firsthand Congresswoman Eshoo’s support, commitment and farsighted approach to maintaining America’s leadership in basic research, and in DOE research in particular. She has been a strong ally in the effort to invest in the research and development needed to secure America’s energy future,” said Dr. Persis Drell, Director, SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory.

Ms. Eshoo serves on the House Energy and Commerce Committee and is a member of the Subcommittee on Telecommunications and the Internet and the Subcommittee on Health. Additionally, she is the co-chair of the Congressional High-Tech Caucus and the House Medical Technology Caucus.

Drs. Drell and Pizzo presented the Champion of Science award to Rep. Eshoo at an event attended by members of The Science Coalition and others from the higher education, high-tech, and scientific community.
