White House Requests Insights on US Research Environment

The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy has issued a request for information to seek insights on how federal agencies can work with industry and academic institutions to maximize the effectiveness and quality of the U.S. research environment.

OSTP released the RFI on behalf of the joint committee on the research environment the National Science and Technology Council established in May.

JCORE is composed of four subcommittees that are focused on ensuring integrity and rigor in research, coordinating administrative requirements for federally funded research, securing the research enterprise and promoting inclusive, equitable and safe research environments.

The subcommittee on rigor and integrity in research, for instance, requests ideas on how federal agencies can work with academic and private institutions to improve research quality, replicability and reproducibility. It also wants information on incentives agencies can offer to facilitate reporting of negative research results.

Interested stakeholders have until Dec. 23 to submit their responses to the RFI.
