AAU works with its member institutions and with other university, scientific, and corporate organizations and groups to encourage the Administration and Congress to implement policies and funding decisions that promote U.S. innovation and economic competitiveness.

This page includes letters, statements, as well as fact sheets and related materials that advocate for federal actions that promote U.S. innovation. A focus is on the importance of steady funding increases for university research and education programs at such agencies as the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, and the Department of Energy Office of Science.
