The Task Force is an alliance of America's leading companies, research universities, and scientific societies. America's future relies on the strength of our ideas.  We advocate for sustained research budgets at the National Science Foundation, the Department of Energy Office of Science, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the Department of Defense, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

What's At Stake?
Our Economy, Security, Health and Future ... to name a few. Scientific research leads to innovation -- new products and services, new ways to address our greatest challenges, even entirely new industries. That means high value jobs, a better quality of life, and a competitive economy.

Federally-funded research uncovers insights that the private sector — through its investment — brings to our world as new products and services.  Scientific research improves our health, finds new energy sources, and equips our soldiers. From the internet, to magnetic resonance imaging, to the global positioning system, scientific research is a proven tool to build a stronger America. Learn more.
