Task Force Reaches Out for Research

The Task Force works regularly with Members of Congress and congressional staff to promote the value of federally funded scientific research. Our member organizations also recognize champions in Congress. Featured here are events (1) with the Congresional R&D Caucus to release a Task Force report benchmarking research and knowledge economy; (2) to illustrate the value of federally funded R&D by deconstructing the iPad; and (3) to honor science champion Rep. Vern Ehlers of Michigan upon his retirement.
