Sustained Research Funding
Scientific investigations, studies, and breakthroughs will be necessary to move away from the unsustainable trajectory that we are on. These investigations, in many cases, may require sustained efforts either due to the difficulty of the challenge or the inherent nature of longitudinal insights. These research efforts are particularly fragile to disruptions caused by the unpredictable modalities of research funding schemes whether in the public or private sector. The imperative of sustained, predictable funding support will be an essential element of achieving the kinds of insights and inventions necessary for sustainable prosperity.
