Whereas the United States competitors are increasing their basic research investment, which will lead to prominent accomplishments such as the successfully landing the first spacecraft on a comet by the European Space Agency, the development of the world’s fastest supercomputer, and research in plant biology revealing new ways to meet global food demand by China — the part the research budget of the United States dropped in 1968 from just below 10% and in to 2015 to less than 4%. During the event, MIT researchers will provide examples of relevant fields that require investment, emphasizing potential opportunities and research needing the United States govern
