Science and Technology Policy: A View from Washington, D.C.

If you are in the Chicagoland area, this might be something worth attending.

As science and technology becomes more important in the health and well-being of our nation, Washington, D.C. is important in advocating for a more scientifically informed public. Join C²ST for a discussion with local representatives from Washington on how to maintain healthy and stable levels of funding for basic and applied scientific research and the impact of working to strengthen our countries’ basic scientific research facilities.

The panelists are Congresswoman Judy Biggert (13th-IL.) and Congressman Bill Foster (14th-IL.). It will be moderated by Nobel Laureate Leon Lederman. It will be held on Northwestern University campus on Friday, Sept.18.
