multi-sector and multi-disciplinary, the CVD is coordinated by coalitions
of companies, professional societies and educational institutions and it is
open to all people who believe that science and technology comprise the
cornerstone of our Nation's future.

the Nation through meetings with congressional decisionmakers.
