03apr12:00 pm1:00 pmHow Federal Politics Impact Funding for Science and Startups


Event Details

Washington politics usually seem far removed from life at the lab bench. But issues at the federal level can affect what funds the government makes available for grants of all types, from R01 to SBIR. If you understand the ever-changing landscape, you may be able frame your application so it is successful, or expand into research areas that are more likely to get funded. To get the big picture from Ryan Davison, government affairs manager at the American Chemical Society in Washington, DC, join us on April 3. Ryan will provide a general political update, highlight specific pieces of legislation meaningful to researchers, discuss key congressional committees, and explain how Republicans and Democrats view the economy differently. Additionally, Ryan will take a look at SBIR and proof-of-concept funding, and highlight areas likely to get funding in the near future.
