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 Hosts Ranking Appropriator for Headliner Breakfast

June 21, 2006

The Science Coalition kicked off the summer by hosting a Headliner Breakfast on June 21st at Tortilla Coast on Capitol Hill. The special guest speaker was Congressman Peter Visclosky (D-IN), the ranking minority member on the House Appropriations Subcommittee for Energy and Water, which determines funding levels for the Office of Science at the US Department of Energy. More than thirty university representatives – including members from Indiana University and Purdue University – and members of the science advocacy community gathered to listen to remarks from the Congressman and ask questions about the current appropriations climate.

Congressman Visclosky addressed how tighter budgets and the growing deficit are affecting science funding. While he expressed his deep support and understanding of the need for university research, he warned of a general attitude from members distracted by what they view as more immediate budget problems. Congressman Visclosky 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.
