STAA’s Ideas

Hunting to fiscal 12 months 2023, we will focus on a quantity of S&T difficulties that will effects our nation. Forthcoming perform incorporates rising infectious health conditions artificial intelligence programs dietary science and equity energy, ecosystem, and transportation U.S. production and offer chain countrywide exploration policy, protection, and evaluations and national and homeland security S&T abilities.

We will also carry on to offer revolutionary methods to more successfully and successfully connect with Congress and the federal S&T group through just-in-time technological consultations and externally concentrated writing or talking functions.
