SPIE Leaders Commend OMB Support for Travel to Scientific Conferences, Say Funding is Also Needed
Date:6/21/2013

Bellingham, Washington, USA (PRWEB) June 20, 2013

Commending recent guidance by the White House that mission-related travel and conferences play an “important role” in government operations, leaders of SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, are continuing to urge Congress and the President to take action to ensure funding for such travel, and to protect funding for science and technology R&D.

The message parallels recent comments by departing chair of the White House Council of Economic Advisors Alan Krueger and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Each said in separate remarks that sequestration-mandated federal budget cuts are threatening progress in scientific research as well as the technology R&D that is necessary for economic vitality.

At the Wall Street Journal CFO Network conference on Monday, Krueger said that the across-the-board cuts have not only restrained short-term economic growth but also threaten the long-term investment of federally funded research and development that can eventually lead to new technologies that drive the economy.

Clinton told the audience at a benefit for Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy last Thursday that deep federal spending cuts are dangerously hindering science through loss of research jobs and activity, the Washington Post reported. She urged “citizen action” to raise awareness about the consequences.
