S RESEARCH INITIATIVE
In April 1997, the NSTC report of the multi-agency
s Initiative” titled Investing in Our Future: A National Research
Initiative for America'
s Children for the 21st Century was published.
It assessed the current scope of research on child and adolescent development,
identified significant gaps in the research agenda, and developed recommendations
for needed efforts not only in the research area but also in linking research
and policy development.
An interagency working group (IWG) has
been established to act on the report'
s recommendations. To guide
fiscal year 2001 budget preparations, the IWG will:
Identify key research investment opportunities
related to children and youth within the priority areas that emphasized
multi-agency collaborations and research-policy linkages.
Work with OSTP and OMB to develop a research
strategy, including budgetary issues.
Identify mechanisms to strengthen research-policy
linkages among NSTC, DPC, Federal agencies, and state and local governments,
as well as non-governmental organizations and other public and private
sector parties at the national, regional, and community levels.
Involve the scientific community outside
the government in the development and assessment of the research investment
opportunities, partnerships, and research-policy linkages.
