U.S. Department of State
The Growth of International Science
Friday, March 6th, 5:30 pm-8:00 p.m.
1525 Greenspring Valley Rd.
Stevenson, MD 21153
Around the entire world, the interest and capabilities of science is growing. In particular, emerging countries and developing countries are expanding their scientific research. There is a recognition that investment in research and development leads to economic development. A country with a knowledge-based economy can grow and thrive even if the country does not have a lot of natural resources. I will speak and show data on the trends in science including publishing, research support, and the workforce and how a globally expanding scientific effort can best be taken advantage of in the United States. In addition, I will discuss how China's research is increasing enormously as the United States' federal research dollars are decreasing. We will look at the increase of international publishing. In addition, I will discuss the efforts the State Department and the American Chemical Society is taking to be a part of this global growth.
