US turns to science to help rebuild its economy

Abstract:
The US government has once again announced plans to spur the economy by investing in science. The Department of Energy (DOE) intends to spend $1.2 billion (0.83 billion) from the recently enacted economic stimulus bill to create new jobs and bolster the nation's long-term scientific capacity. Specifically, DOE will use the money to accelerate construction of key research facilities, buy advanced scientific instruments, and upgrade or modernise the infrastructure of its national laboratories.

An additional $330 million will be used for operations and equipment at major scientific facilities like the Spallation Neutron Source at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee, which is used by researchers engaged in chemistry, advanced materials science and biology. Other recipients of these funds will be DOE's Nanoscale Science Research Centers, which are located at five national labs across the country and aim to support synthesis, processing, fabrication and analysis at the nanoscale level.
