Budget Shifts Funding From Defense To Civilian Research

Abstract:
The administration's 2010 budget request for science and technology would shift funds from the Pentagon towards civilian science and climate-research programs, add money for technologies that may generate commercial jobs at home and boost funding for multinational science projects.

Climate-research projects gained funding even as other prominent science projects were effectively frozen. For example, the administration requested slightly less this year for the National Nanotechnology Initiative, whose many programs fund the development of new materials and extremely small devices. If enacted by Congress, the $1.8 billion budget would yield a 0.3 percent decrease for the initiative.
