In a new report, the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) called for protecting U.S. technological advantages by attracting more foreign-born talent, increasing immigration and taking other measures. The report comes at a time of growing attention to U.S. wait times and visa shortfalls that have encouraged talented foreign-born students and professionals to seek out other countries.

The report, Protecting U.S. Technological Advantage, notes that U.S. success in science and technology has encouraged other nations to build up their universities, invest more in research and development and attract talent from around the world. Other countries, particularly China, have seen an increase in their domestic supply of students in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields. The NAS report was published jointly by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.
