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.

Policymakers and reporters gather on Capitol Hill to Liftoff with The Science Coalition

January 23, 2007

On January 23rd, policymakers and members of the press joined The Science Coalition for a bite on Capitol Hill to "Liftoff" and celebrate ten years of science advocacy and innovation.

The event was planned to salute the Coalition's Champions of Science and their new colleagues in the 110th Congress, celebrate a new online look for the Coalition, and most importantly, highlight several exciting innovations that are the direct result of Federal funding for university research.

Among the innovations featured at the Liftoff event was the Smart Shirt, a tee-shirt made of electrical fibers that offers fast diagnoses to medical emergencies. The Smart Shirt was developed by Dr. Sumaresan Jamarayan, a researcher at the Georgia Institute of Technology, who was on hand to demonstrate his invention with his assistant Sungmee Park. 

Also making the rounds at the party was not only the nearly 200 guests, but some unmanned spy planes flying overhead.  The winged-guests are a new kind of drone developed by engineers at the University of Florida at Gainseville, who came to the "Liftoff" event to show off this fascinating new urban weapon.

The interactive celebration was certainly a hit and the Coalition was thrilled to have an opportunity to tout some of the many accomplishments that have emerged out of science advocacy efforts in the last decade.
