A broad coalition of 111 stakeholder organizations from U.S. academia, scientific societies, and industry, including AIBS, have sent a letter to congressional leadership in support of robust funding for the National Science Foundation (NSF) in the infrastructure packages currently being negotiated in the House and Senate.
“NSF is a critical part of our nation’s innovation infrastructure,” the groups note. “Large bipartisan majorities in both houses of Congress have recognized the urgent need to invest in our science, engineering, and technology ecosystem to ensure our competitiveness and enable the innovation for a better future. Now, Congress must provide the actual funding for this effort to ensure our science and engineering ecosystem can respond to the challenges ahead.”
