Congress recently enacted increased federal funding for Fiscal Year 2018 for research and development. Yet, the United States needs to maintain robust and sustained federal funding for scientific research. Global competitors are doubling down on science as key to creating new innovations and solving the challenges of the future. Continually developing new scientific knowledge and technologies drives long-term economic growth and creates higher-skilled jobs. Join us on May 8 for a conversation on federal investment in scientific research and innovation and how to maintain America’s economic and competitive edge.
