Grand Challenge 5: National Security

Fundamental research to protect America

The challenge

The 2015 U.S. National Security Strategy presents a vision for protecting U.S. interests in an insecure world. Notable elements include preventing the spread of weapons of mass destruction, strengthening America’s critical infrastructure (energy systems, roads, bridges, water systems, and more), and reducing hunger. Also included is the need to prevent, detect, and rapidly respond to biological threats through the Global Health Security Agenda.
