Report: Research Universities Essential for U.S. Prosperity, Security
from R&D Magazine
America's research universities are essential for U.S. prosperity and security, but in danger of serious decline unless the federal government, states and industry take action to ensure adequate, stable funding in the next decade, according to a report issued by the National Research Council, the operating arm of the National Academy of Sciences and National Academy of Engineering. The report, titled "Research Universities and the Future of America: Ten Breakthrough Actions Vital to Our Nation's Prosperity and Security," was requested by Congress as a follow-up to a study on U.S. competitiveness issued by the academies in 2005. The new report recommends 10 strategic actions that the nation should take in the next five to 10 years to maintain top-quality U.S. research institutions.
