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 Applauds Congress for Passing FY 2018 Omnibus That Supports Science and Promotes Innovation

March 23, 2018

WASHINGTON – The Science Coalition (TSC) released the following statement in response to Congress’ passage of the fiscal year (FY) 2018 omnibus appropriations bill:


“The Science Coalition commends the bipartisan leadership of Congress in approving the FY 2018 omnibus appropriations bill, which directs critical federal investment to fundamental research programs at the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, Department of Energy Office of Science, USDA’s Agriculture and Food Research Initiative, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the Department of Defense basic research programs, and other key agencies. Thanks to this bill, fundamental research programs and the scientific enterprise they support will receive the largest boost in federal investment they have had in years.


“The fundamental research supported by these agencies underpins a national network of scientific innovation that bolsters our economic leadership. Each of these agencies directs critical research programs through a vast system of research universities and national laboratories, producing breakthroughs in science and technology that subsequently incubate U.S. companies and industries and produce solutions to our most pressing global challenges. America’s federally funded basic research is the backbone of our country’s manufacturing base, agricultural and environmental sustainability, biomedical leadership, energy infrastructure, and national security.


“After years of stagnation, this bill takes exemplary action toward reinstating our country’s commitment to science and reinvigorating our investment in research and development. The Science Coalition profusely applauds the bipartisan Members of Congress who acted as true champions of science today in voting for this bill.”
