Event description

Description

On the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the publication of Vannevar Bush’s Science – The Endless Frontier, the National Academy of Sciences, The Kavli Foundation, and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation are hosting a symposium to reflect upon the past, present and future of our nation’s scientific research enterprise.

Bush's report was the guiding force for science and innovation in our country for decades. It led to the development of the modern American research university, the National Science Foundation, and the intellectual architecture for science, engineering, and medical research and higher education in the United States. Science – The Endless Frontier helped form critical institutions and shaped much of our science policy. From post-World World II through the end of the Cold War in 1990, it was the guiding light for the nation’s science policy. After the end of the Cold War, science policy began to change and continues to change. Now is the time to look to the future: What is our vision for science during the next 75 years?

This symposium is the start of an important year-long conversation exploring how to strengthen the nation’s scientific enterprise to ensure its health and success for our society.
