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 Hosts Eighth Annual Media Roundtable in New York City

March 1, 2007

Presidents of four TSC member institutions and thirteen members of the media attended The Science Coalition’s eighth annual national media roundtable in New York City on March 1 at the Penn Club.  The attendees took part in a spirited discussion that covered science funding, energy and immigration policy, and many other issues facing higher education, the science community and the nation.

President Michael Crow of Arizona State University hosted the event.  He was joined by President Lou Anna Simon of Michigan State University, Chancellor Richard Herman of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and President Shirley Strum Kenny of Stony Brook University.

Media outlets present at the event included the Wall Street Journal, Business Week, CNBC,  the Chronicle of Higher Education, R&D Magazine, Scientific American, Money magazine, University Business magazine, Wired Magazine, New York Review of Books, and the Christian Science Monitor.  

Speaking on the record for a candid two-hour discussion, the prevailing theme of the participants’ exchange was the unique innovation and discovery role the university research system fulfills nationally and internationally.  All agreed that universities are the only institutions left that are conducting competitive basic research.  The conversation then turned to the future and focused on current challenges to maintaining a robust university research system.  At the end of the discussion, the point was made that universities need to find ways to do a better job telling their story about science to the public.
