I was able to attend an Elsevier Customer Council meeting recently which included a fascinating presentation from a Kei Koizumi, the Director of the R&D Budget and Policy Program at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).


Here’s a link to his presentation and the book (an annual effort) that he presented.  It does not paint a bright picture of R&D funding in the future for either defense or non-defense projects.
