Science Policy is more important than ever. With federal funding for basic research undergoing a secular stagnation, decisions about how to spend those scarce dollars for the greatest return on investment for the American taxpayer take on ever more importance. In my seminar, I will discuss some of the complexities regarding current science policy both with regards to the NSF and the broader federal R&D ‘waterfront’. The key take home point will be the importance of transparency and accountability for all the stakeholders — from Congress to the PI.
