The Obama Administration released on July 9, 2015, a memorandum outlining “Multi-Agency Science and Technology Priorities for the FY 2017 Budget” (PDF). The priorities include investments in R&D, STEM education and workforce development, technology transfer, R&D infrastructure, and scientific-collection management. The memorandum notes that “preserving and improving access to scientific collections, research data, other results of federally funded research, open datasets, and open educational resources should be a priority for agencies.”
