Science & Technology Action Committee

The non-partisan Science and Technology Action Committee (STAC) includes individuals from non-profit, academic, foundation and corporate institutions committed to dramatically increasing U.S. investment in science and technology (S&T).

Boldly committing to renewed S&T investment in the U.S. will spur innovation to:

  • Ensure the U.S. remains the global leader in science and technology.
  • Strengthen our national security.
  • Create a healthier population.
  • Grow our economy.

As part of its advocacy for science, STAC publishes resources that highlight the value of investing in innovation and make the case for much-needed investments in S&T to enable the U.S. to remain a global leader — we encourage you to read and share these materials:


Please also considering endorsing (as an organization or an individual) the Science & Technology Action Plan, which outlines several concrete actions toward a renewed national commitment to investing in S&T to surmount overarching societal threats.

Research!America is a founding member of STAC, which is co-chaired by Keith Yamamoto, Vice Chancellor for Science Policy & Strategy at UCSF; Sudip Parikh, CEO of the American Association for the Advancement of Science; Mary Woolley, President & CEO of Research!America; and Bill Novelli, Professor & Founder of the Business For Impact Center at Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business.
