Check out Science 2034 from The Science Coalition. It is a website that predicts and highlights what can be accomplished in 20 years if science is well-funded. More reasons than ever to increase funding for science!
WHILE WE DON’T KNOW WHAT THE NEXT “BIG THING” WILL BE, WE CAN MAKE SOME EDUCATED PREDICTIONS ABOUT HOW WELL-FUNDED SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH MIGHT CHANGE OUR LIVES AND OUR WORLD.
TSC 2014 President Jon Pyatt introduces Science2034.org
SCIENCE 2034 is an initiative by The Science Coalition to mark our 20th anniversary by looking forward 20 years and focusing on the possibilities of the future. While we don’t know what the next “Big Thing” will be, we can make some educated predictions about how well-funded scientific research might change our lives and our world. We are asking scientists, policymakers and thought leaders to weigh in and tell us what they think science will enable 20 years from now and what that will mean to individuals, society and the world.
