News: AAAS 2013 Annual Meeting News
Tackling the Big Questions in Science Policy
AAAS President William Press stopped by Boston newsrooms today, as the association prepared to kick off the Annual Meeting in Boston. He appeared on WBUR’s Here and Now, discussing the major issues in science, science policy and science education with host Robin Young. Describing the “state of the science union” as “essential but threatened,” Press also covered topics such as climate change and federal R&D funding.
Press also visited the Boston Globe, where he spoke with journalists about the need for scientists to emphasize the importance of basic research to the economy, a message he plans to present at the meeting.
