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.
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:
- The Incredible, Incomparable ROI of R&D: Federal Funding Fuels the Innovations That Transform Our Lives (May 2023)
- Rise of China Memo: China is a Determined and Formidable Competitor With the U.S. in Science & Technology (February 2023)
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.
