Editors: Anita V. Mahoney
Book Description:
This book summarizes current research and development priority-setting issues - in terms of spending priorities, topical or field-specific priorities, and organizational arrangements to determine priorities. Federal R&D funding priorities have shifted over time, reflecting presidential preferences, congressional appropriations, and national priorities. Defense R&D predominated in the 1980s but decreased to about 50% of total federal R&D in the 1990s, reflecting Clinton Administration policies. In non-defense R&D, space was important in the 1960s as the nation sought to compete with the Soviet Union in the space race; energy R&D joined space as a priority during the 1970s; and since the 1980s, health R&D funding has grown as the cohort of aged population increases and the promise of life sciences and biotechnology affects national expectations. Defense and counterterrorism R&D funding have been increased since the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Together, Department of Defense (DOD) and National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding total about 77% of the FY2007 R&D request.
