23rd Annual AAAS Colloquium On Science And Technology Policy

April 14, 1998

Washington, DC -- April 14, 1998 -- Methods of evaluating R&D programs' performance and international science policy issues will be among the topics discussed by policy-makers, industry representatives, and academics at a three-day conference in Washington, DC, sponsored by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

The 23rd annual AAAS Science & Technology Policy Colloquium will feature a detailed analysis of the President's FY 1999 R&D budget. Representatives from six federal agencies -- the U.S. Departments of Defense, Energy, and Commerce; National Institutes of Health; National Science Foundation; and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) -- will outline their respective budgets for FY 1999. A plenary session will focus on the 1993 Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA), which requires federal agencies to submit strategic plans, implementation plans, and methods for assessing progress. A central issue of the GPRA session will be how to define research goals and progress in areas of basic research.
