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: Budget Deal Produces Much-Needed Stability for Scientific Research

February 9, 2018

WASHINGTON – The Science Coalition (TSC) released the following statement after Congress approved an agreement to increase federal spending caps for fiscal years 2018 and 2019:


“The Science Coalition applauds leaders in Congress for coming together and passing a budget deal that will finally provide certainty for agencies that fund scientific research. The two-year deal alleviates pressure from federal budget caps, freeing dollars for the defense and domestic discretionary programs that support fundamental research while also avoiding the harmful sequestration cuts that have inhibited our country’s scientific enterprise. 


“This deal also ends the recent short-term, short-sighted budgeting that undercuts federal agencies’ ability to predictably fund important research. Now, agencies like the Department of Defense and National Institutes of Health can more reliably support scientific breakthroughs at our nation’s universities. Findings from our country’s basic science research lead to the technological and fundamental understandings of our world that protect our troops, identify medical cures, bolster our nation’s infrastructure, educate the next generation of American innovators, and power our economy. Funding for this research is critical in order for America to thrive for years to come. 


“As this bipartisan deal demonstrates, federal funding for scientific research should be a priority for Americans across the political spectrum. As Congress deliberates in the coming weeks over how to appropriate funds for fiscal year 2018, we urge Members to prioritize funding for basic research supported by agencies including the National Science Foundation and Department of Energy. With some federal fiscal constraints eased, it is time to invest in the fundamental science research that improves lives and grows the American economy.”
