ARISE I—Advancing Research In Science and Engineering: Investing in Early-Career Scientists and High-Risk, High-Reward Research

The ARISE report addresses two issues central to the vitality of America's research enterprise: 1) the support of early-career investigators; and 2) the encouragement of high-risk, high-reward research. Such support and encouragement will foster a new generation of scientists and stimulate the daring investigations that will generate competitive advantage in a global economy.
