Science for the 21st Century


"This document was produced under the direction of the National Science and Technology Council's Committee on Science. The document details, from a Federal agency perspective, the science policies and accomplishments of the current Administration and illustrates how today's science sets the stage for benefits to the economy and national quality of life far into the future.


This report presents the critical responsibilities of our Federal science enterprise and the actions taken by the Federal research agencies, through the National Science and Technology Council, to align our programs with scientific opportunity and with national needs. The many examples show how our science enterprise has responded to the President's priorities for homeland and national security, economic growth, health research, and the environment. In addition, we show how the science agencies work together to set priorities; coordinate related research programs; leverage investments to promote discovery, translate science into national benefits, and sustain the national research enterprise; and promote excellence in math and science education and workforce development."
