Congressional briefings and exhibitions

The AMS holds annual congressional briefings as a means to communicate information to policymakers. Speakers bring science directly to Capitol Hill decision-makers and offer stories of how federal investment in basic research in math and science pays off for American taxpayers and helps the nation remain a world leader in innovation. The National Science Foundation (NSF) provides the majority of funding for the basic research necessary to unlock the enormous potential applications of the mathematical sciences. The AMS appreciates the NSF’s farsighted commitment to this investment.

Beginning in 2023, each briefing highlights work connected to one of the NSF-funded Mathematical Sciences Institutes. The 2023 briefing is in partnership with the Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM).
