THE TRENDS

Federal research is falling as a share of the US economy.

As Americans become more reliant on knowledge-based industries for their health, safety, employment and living standards, we are under investing in new knowledge. It’s time to reverse this innovation deficit.

#FundBasicResearch

Basic research in science, technology, engineering, and math serves as the intellectual infrastructure for America’s innovation economy.
