Latest R&D Analysis of '05
Federal Budget Available Now
The 29th AAAS annual report on R&D (research and development) in the 2005 federal budget is now available online (http://www.aaas.org/spp/rd/rd05main.htm) in advance of the printed publication, which is slated for release in late April.
Written in collaboration with two dozen other science and engineering societies, this newest reference work, AAAS Report XXIX: Research and Development FY 2005 provides a comprehensive analysis of R&D in the President's budget for FY (fiscal year) 2005, including specialized analyses by theme, major agency, and discipline. The printed book will be released on April 22 at the 29th Annual AAAS Forum on Science and Technology Policy (see related article, http://www.aaas.org/news/releases/2004/0323sntformintro.shtml), and will be available for purchase beginning April 22. The full text of the 304-page report, including nearly 40 tables, is available in HTML and PDF formats.
At the forthcoming AAAS Forum, Kei Koizumi, Director of the AAAS R&D Budget and Policy Program will present additional information in the form of a new five-year projection for the Federal R&D budget.
The AAAS analyses are supplemented with charts and tables on various aspects of R&D funding including information placing federal R&D in the wider context of historical trends, the total federal budget, and total U.S. and world R&D.
A 15-page summary containing highlights from this book is also available as an AAAS Analysis of R&D in the FY 2005 Budget. (http://www.aaas.org/spp/rd/prel05p.htm) For more information on R&D in the FY 2005 budget, see the FY 2005 R&D page on the AAAS R&D web site (http://www.aaas.org/spp/rd/).
The AAAS R&D Budget and Policy Program publishes two major reports each year. The first report, AAAS Report xx: Research and Development FY xxxx, examines the President's budget proposals for R&D for key departments and disciplines in collaboration with contributors from other scientific, engineering and higher education societies. After Congress completes the appropriations process for the coming fiscal year (usually late fall), the Program prepares a second report — Congressional Action on Research and Development in the FY xxxx Budget — that estimates and analyzes R&D funding in the final appropriations. This publication remains the only domestic comprehensive analysis of budgets for R&D as finally passed by Congress. The FY 2004 edition, Congressional Action on Research and Development in the FY 2004 Budget, was published in January 2004.
