  • Restoring the Foundation: Selected Endorsements - American Academy of Arts & Sciences
    scientific discoveries often emerge from collaborating with other researchers and organizations inside and outside our laboratories We endorse the implementation of the Academy s prescriptions for improved government university and industry collaboration as critical steps to ensuring U S leadership in global scientific discovery and innovation Kenneth Frazier Chairman of the Board President and Chief Executive Officer Merck Company Inc American business has long supported a strong federal role in basic research which is the foundation of the private sector innovation that drives economic growth but the United States is now falling behind Restoring the Foundation explains in clear terms what this slippage means not just for the U S economy but also for our nation s place as a world innovation leader and offers solid recommendations for regaining our global research leadership Policy makers considering strategies for economic growth should make Restoring the Foundation part of their own basic research John Engler President The Business Roundtable former President and Chief Executive Officer National Association of Manufacturers former Governor of Michigan This report is an urgent call to recommit to one of our nation s most successful investments which has stagnated the investment in the people and research that have led to the amazing scientific and engineering discoveries underpinning U S world leadership Failure to address our nation s widening innovation deficit will result in the squandering of the international economic and technological leadership that is so vital to our societal welfare Industrial government and academic leaders must work together to implement the sound recommendations in this report Peter McPherson President Association of Public and Land grant Universities This report makes abundantly clear the threat our nation faces to its standing as the global leader in science and innovation Even more importantly it lays out three prescriptions for the future health of the U S science and engineering enterprise that reflect fiscal reality emphasizing long term strategic thinking and calling for the federal government industry and universities to take steps to renew their historical partnership The wise recommendations in this report can help our nation close the Innovation Deficit they should and must spark action Hunter R Rawlings III President Association of American Universities In the News 10 19 15 Why Microsoft cares about basic research and you should too Inside Microsoft Research 10 18 15 An Imperative to Innovate Arizona Daily Sun 10 2 15 U of I supports Innovation An American Imperative call to action Illinois Connection University of Illinois 6 23 15 Restore Research to Preserve the American Dream podcast Scientific American 2 6 15 Research Going Going Gone Innovation 10 31 14 Plight of thousands of postdoctoral researchers in Boston By Nancy C Andrews Neal F Lane and Norman R Augustine 10 15 14 How to Stop Winning Nobel Prizes in Science The Wall Street Journal 9 16 14 Lack of Research Funding Is Hurting the American Dream Leaders Say U S News World Report 9 16 14 New Democrat Coalition Leaders Laud New Report of

  • A Conversation on Restoring the Foundation: The Important Role of Central and Southern Plains Institutions in Driving National Change - American Academy of Arts & Sciences
    by current incentive structures and institutional boundaries She urged university vice presidents and vice chancellors for research to work with their institutions to review promotion and tenure policies and to foster a fresh research culture that encourages collaboration and rewards shared credit Strengthening the partnership among universities industry and the government is a core recommendation from Restoring the Foundation The report also highlights the need for sustainable federal investments in research and for implementing policy reforms to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of America s research system Restoring the Foundation cochair Neal Lane Senior Fellow at Rice University s Baker Institute former Science Advisor to President William J Clinton and former Director of the National Science Foundation stressed the importance of gaining the attention of policy makers across America He urged the participants to begin with leaders in their own states We really must get the conversation going so that the public their elected representatives and leaders in all sectors understand why steady sustainable investment and policy change are so important The people who represent your states are in key positions right now and if they hear from you and your colleagues your business leaders your university leaders that makes a difference Those voices are important Successfully Navigating New Waters Excerpts from a Speech Delivered by Sally Mason Sally Mason is President Emeritus of the University of Iowa The uncertainties and challenges facing higher education are not the same as those we faced ten twenty or even one hundred years ago But our public universities are one of the great achievements of American society and today as a century ago they are at the very core of the American Dream Let me here emphasize that I don t believe that student success teaching economic development and research are mutually exclusive Even in tough economic times we don t need to sacrifice one for the other Rather as in any period of change adaptability and flexibility are key There are ample opportunities at our institutions to implement change even to do so quickly despite the seemingly overwhelming nature of the task But in these uncertain times how can we reimagine our approaches to the research enterprise To begin universities must diversify their research portfolios This challenge requires that we build new partnerships outside of traditional government and in industry increase interdisciplinary approaches and better incorporate our research expertise into our core missions of undergraduate education and public engagement You never know when or where you might find an interesting partner Let me encourage you not only to work with businesses in your states but to continue to work with as many different groups as you possibly can We must reach out and make certain that we break down the silos that have been built within our institutions Businesses and nonprofits reach out all the time we as research universities must do so as well Our systems may not incentivize it and institutional barriers even interinstitutional barriers may make it challenging to
