Federal Research and Development Funding: FY2012

Description: President Obama has requested $147.911 billion for research and development (R&D) in FY2012, a $772 million (0.5%) increase from the FY2010 actual R&D funding level of $147.139 billion.

Low or negative growth in the overall R&D investment may require movement of resources across disciplines, programs, or agencies to address priorities.
