OSTP Releases FY 2025 R&D Budget Priorities

OSTP Releases FY 2025 R&D Budget Priorities

White House Office of Science and Technology Policy Director, Arati Prabhakar, and Office of Management and Budget Director, Shalanda D. Young, sent a memo to heads of executive branch departments and agencies regarding multi-agency research and development (R&D) priorities under the President’s Fiscal Year 2025 Budget. This annual memo outlines the Biden-Harris Administration’s R&D priorities to help guide agency budget submissions.
 
In their memo, Director Young and Director Prabhakar stated, “To make its vital contribution to our future, federal R&D must sustain America’s leadership position in science and technology. It must take aim at and achieve bold, barely feasible goals. Federal R&D must translate into new products and services, new industries and jobs, new policies and regulations, and new standards and practices. And it must bring the power of innovation to important national missions that have not traditionally benefitted from R&D—from K12 education and workforce training to construction and traffic safety.” 
 
Congress has failed to come close to appropriating the funds authorized by the CHIPS and Science Act of 2022. The R&D Budget Priorities memo will be used to help communicate the importance of science and technology research issues to Congress in the year ahead.
