The AAAS Research Competitiveness Program (RCP) provides expert advice to those investing in, supporting, and managing activities in science and technology around the world. For nearly twenty years, in more than thirty U.S. states as well as internationally, RCP staff have assembled and led carefully-tailored teams of scientists, engineers, policy makers, and innovators to provide expert peer review and guidance to clients interested in increasing their research capacity through the following services:

  • Institutional and Programmatic Peer Review
  • Proposal Peer Review
  • Science and Technology Impact Analysis
  • Fostering Discussions in the Science and Policy Communities

To accomplish this work, RCP draws on a network of experts that includes researchers from all areas of science and technology; leaders from academic and government institutions; persons experienced in product development and technology transfer; innovators and entrepreneurs from all fields. This work is carried out under the auspices of AAAS, the world’s largest general scientific society. Our clients include state and federal agencies, state-wide research programs, university consortia, and individual research institutions in the U.S. and around the world.
