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

Back to publications
American Academy of Arts & Sciences

With valuable input from leaders of the key federal science and technology research agencies, members of Congress and their staffs, academic leaders, and young faculty, the the Committee on Alternative Models for the Federal Funding of Science has analyzed current science funding policies in order to find ways to strengthen the impact of federal research dollars. The publication offers fresh policy recommendations for government, university, and foundation leaders.

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.
