Golden Goose Award

The Science Coalition is a founding organization of the Golden Goose Award. The purpose of the Golden Goose Award is to demonstrate the human and economic benefits of federally funded research by highlighting examples of seemingly obscure studies that have led to major breakthroughs and resulted in significant societal impact.

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.

Press Conference: Basic Research and America’s Energy Future

November 17, 2008

The United States is spending 50 percent less on energy R&D today than during the 1970s oil embargo, according to a recent report by the Institute for 21st Century Energy of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.  

On Wednesday, Sept. 17 at the National Press Club, The Science Coalition and The Task Force on the Future of American Innovation will hold a press conference on the critical importance of basic research to solving America’s energy crisis.  “Fueling America’s Future Depends on Funding Energy Research Today” will feature MIT President Susan Hockfield, DuPont Chairman and CEO Chad Holliday, Nobel Laureate and Director of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Steven Chu, and David Bell, President, CEO, and Director, Intersil Corporation.

The speakers, representing critical components of America’s innovation pipeline, will make the case for a coordinated, long-term investment in basic energy research that will be necessary for America to achieve energy security – and they will call on the next President to commit to doing so.  They will also describe promising research happening today; provide examples of marketable solutions that have their roots in basic research; discuss America’s role in leading the development of a diverse and sustainable portfolio of new energy solutions; and explain the consequences of failing to provide such leadership through adequate funding of energy research.  

The press conference will be held at 9 a.m. in the Zenger Room at the National Press Club.
