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.

Statement on Passage of FY2017 Omnibus Spending Bill

May 4, 2017

The Science Coalition released the following statement on passage of the Fiscal Year 2017 omnibus spending bill. The statement can be attributed to Science Coalition President Glynda Becker.


May 4, 2017 – “The Science Coalition is pleased that Congress has passed an FY17 spending bill and applauds the funding for science contained in the bill. This funding continues the longstanding tradition of strong bipartisan support for scientific research and recognizes the very significant impact that federally funded research has on society and the economy.


“The Science Coalition recently released a report that identifies 102 examples of American-made innovation – companies created from federally funded university research. While companies are just one illustration of the many ways investments in basic scientific research benefit society and the economy, the companies highlighted in the report each are bringing to market transformational innovations, creating jobs, and contributing to economic growth. The companies exist because academic researchers had access to competitively awarded grants from America’s premier research agencies, including the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, Department of Energy Office of Science, Department of Defense R&D, Department of Agriculture, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology.


“We are grateful for the leadership of House and Senate appropriators and to many others in Congress who are likewise committed to investing in the research that will keep the United States globally competitive and the world’s leader in science and technology. The unique partnership between America’s research universities and the federal government is also helping to meet the needs of industry partners by keeping the innovation and workforce pipelines primed.”


The Science Coalition is a non-profit, nonpartisan organization of the nation’s leading public and private research universities. It is dedicated to sustaining strong federal funding of basic scientific research as a means to stimulate the economy, spur innovation and drive America’s global competitiveness.
