Task Force Unveils Website
December 1, 2009

The Task Force on American Innovation recently unveiled a new website which offers fresh and comprehensive information on federal policies and appropriations for key agencies that fund research in the physical sciences, engineering, and mathematics.

The organizations that belong to the task force believe that America remains a global innovation leader but that our competitors are closing the gap and in some instances widening their lead. America must improve in areas such as basic research in the physical sciences and engineering; math and science education; and tapping the best global talent for innovation here at home.

The task force website,, is unique in its focus on federal policy in the physical sciences. It is intended to serve as a tool for policymakers, such as congressional staff and agency officials, as well as the news media, constituents of task force member organizations, and the general public. The site will contain up-to-date information on appropriations for key agencies, relevant authorization legislation, press releases and news stories on federally funded research, links to science news, and information on the economic and other impacts of basic research in the physical sciences.
