Science and Technology Policy in the Obama Era

Former Clinton Science Advisor Neal Lane will speak on this very topic at University of Texas at Dallas this Wednesday, Sept. 23. The event is to commemorate the 25th anniversary of "Issues in Science and Technology" journal.

“It is appropriate that the speaker who will mark the milestone of our 25th anniversary is a renowned physicist and university leader who took on the challenge of managing the nation’s premier physical science research agency and serving as the conduit between the scientific community and the White House,” said Kevin Finneran, editor in chief of Issues in Science and Technology. “He has devoted most of his career to the same mission as Issues: applying the insights of the science and engineering community to help solve the world’s pressing problems and achieve society’s goals.”

Sounds like a topic that would be of interest to many, especially those in the science field here in the US. If you get to attend this, I would love to hear a brief report.
