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: Government Shutdown Could Cripple Critical American Scientific Research Funding

January 20, 2018

WASHINGTON – The Science Coalition (TSC) released the following statement after Congress failed to pass a short-term continuing resolution to fund the federal government:


“The Science Coalition is disappointed that Congress has been unable to reach a funding agreement of any kind, short-term or long-term. The failure to keep the government funded and operational will have wide-ranging implications for American leadership in fundamental scientific research.


“We urge Congress to return to the negotiating table quickly, and to pursue a deal that allows adequate funding for key science programs and agencies, both defense and non-defense. It has been well documented that investment in fundamental research drives tomorrow’s transformative discoveries and underpins important American industries from agriculture and health care to technology.


“The relationship between the federal government and American research universities is unique and results in many of the world’s most impactful discoveries, which drive long-term economic growth. We look forward to continuing our work as a constructive partner to Congress in support of robust federal investments in fundamental research.”
