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 Coalition Caps off its 2006 Headliner Series with Incoming Science Committee Chair Bart Gordon

December 6, 2006

The Science Coalition wrapped up its 2006 Headliner Breakfast series and the fall congressional season at The Caucus Room on December 6th.  The featured guest speaker was current ranking member of the Science Committee and incoming Chairman Bart Gordon (D-TN).  A near record turnout of almost 50 university representatives and members of the science advocacy and business communities gathered to listen to remarks from the Congressman and ask questions about the current appropriations climate.

Congressman Gordon spoke fervently on his belief in the importance of American competitiveness as a priority issue in this country. He also emphasized that the best legislation is bi-partisan legislation and referenced legislation he introduced last fall that acted almost verbatim upon the recommendations of the National Academy of Sciences report, Rising above the Gathering Storm.  Congressman Gordon also said he plans to “cast a wide net” and talk to many folks across the science community and thanked TSC for putting “a face on science”.  But, he warned of a “battle for dollars” in the new congress and encouraged TSC to use effective communication vehicles to get its message to both members of Congress and the general public.

Congressman Gordon is a clear ally in the ongoing fight for federal funding and the Coalition was grateful to him for his invaluable insight and suggestions moving forward.
