Kei Koizumi, AAAS (American Association for the Advancement of Science) senior fellow, addressed the Science Diplomats Club on Thursday, April 19, 2018 from 8am to 10am, at the Embassy of France in Washington, DC.

About the Presentation

Kei spoke about the recent Novim report “Warning Signs : Effects of Proposed Federal Funding Cuts to Environmental and Climate Research and Development Programs” that he co-authored. The report analyzes the U.S. 2018 budget’s potential impacts on climate and environment R&D investments. Koizumi updated the report in light of the recently-completed 2018 U.S. federal appropriations and the recently-released 2019 budget, and discussed the broader implications of final 2018 funding levels for the U.S. science and engineering enterprise and international S&T cooperation.
