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.

The Science Coalition Comments On The Implementation Of The Sequester

March 1, 2013

The Science Coalition is extremely disappointed that the deadline for sequestration has come and gone with no plan for mitigating the harm of these indiscriminate cuts to discretionary spending. Funding for scientific research will be particularly hard-hit. Already a small portion of the overall federal budget, funding for scientific research will be reduced by nearly $95 billion through sequestration over the next nine years. And these cuts are in addition to the tight caps on discretionary spending already put in place by the Budget Control Act of 2011.

Basic scientific research – funded by the federal government and conducted in partnership with universities and national labs across the country – drives innovation, produces economic growth, contributes to workforce development and keeps our country competitive. The Science Coalition has consistently expressed deep concern about the negative consequences of sequestration since it became law. Now, during our nation's economic recovery, is not the time to cut federal investment in basic research. It is our strong hope that the conversations among political leaders taking place today at the White House and in the near future produce a path forward that prioritizes America's ability to make smart investments like funding basic scientific research.
