Center of Science, Policy and Society Programs: Research Competitiveness Program
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 more than ten years, in 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 in areas such as research infrastructure and capacity building, strategic planning, and technology-based economic development. 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; and entrepreneurs and business managers from all fields. This work is carried out under the auspices of AAAS, the world's largest general scientific society.
