Department of Energy's Office of Science unveils 20-year vision for the future of basic research

WASINGTON, DC -- The U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Science today unveiled its Strategic Plan, which charts a course for science over the next two decades that promises dramatic increases in knowledge and scientific achievements. The DOE's Office of Science is the nation's largest supporter of the physical sciences and a major contributor to other vital areas of basic research that underpin national security and economic prosperity.

"Major advances in science including new materials, advanced computational simulations and new ways to produce energy, underpin all of the Department of Energy's missions," Secretary of Energy Spencer Abraham said. "DOE's Office of Science has developed a bold Strategic Plan that holds the promise of leapfrogging our current capabilities and keeping the United States in a leadership position in the international competition for new ideas and technologies."

The plan sets seven short-term (5-10 year) scientific priorities: the ITER fusion science experiment, scientific discovery through advanced scientific computing, using nanoscale science for new materials and processes, microbial genomics, physics to explore the basic forces of creation, exploring new forms of nuclear matter, and developing the facilities for the future of science.

The plan also sets seven long-term (10-20 year) scientific goals in the areas of: science for energy; harnessing biology for energy and environment; fusion; fundamentals of energy, matter and time; nuclear physics research from quarks to the stars; computation for the frontiers of science; and, building resource foundations for new science.

The Office of Science Strategic Plan has been developed so that progress toward these and other scientific programs can be tracked over the next two decades. The plan lays out "Strategic Timelines" for DOE's Office of Science basic research programs that project over the next 20 years the science that could be delivered. The plan
