New Web Site Highlights Research Supported by Stimulus Legislation

Top public and private universities teamed up with members of Congress today to launch a new Web site and related efforts to highlight the role of the multibillion-dollar economic-stimulus legislation in fostering research both on and off campus. The centerpiece of the program is a Web site, ScienceWorksforUs, which uses a map and other means to draw attention to research in all 50 states that is being supported by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which was enacted last February and directed $21.5-billion toward scientific research. The initiative is being sponsored by the Association of American Universities, the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities, and the Science Coalition.
