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. 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.Continue
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.
Behind every transformative advance are people — scientists and engineers, students and teachers — driven by a need to know and committed to the pursuit of discovery. They are, in every sense of the word, innovators...Learn More
Only a tiny fraction of companies can trace their roots to discoveries from federally funded university research. Yet these research-based companies are contributing to the economy in significant ways and often succeeding while other new companies fail...Learn More
Champions of Science believe that basic scientific research, conducted at universities across the country, is essential to our ability to address pressing issues in health, security, energy and the environment, and that a strong federally supported basic research enterprise drives the innovation that fuels the economy...Learn More
