Science and engineering research have traditionally had bipartisan support in Congress, but bipartisanship is becoming increasingly hard to find. As a result, that support has become endangered, Senator Jeff Bingaman (D-New Mexico) told the 2012-2013 class of AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellows during their orientation. But, he thinks they can help reverse that trend.

AAAS staff members traveled to China in September to help promote the role of women in science during the meeting of the Academy of Sciences for the Developing World in Tianjin, to take part in a Hangzhou meeting on ethics in science, and to encourage the communication of peer-reviewed research.

Call it a paradox of time.

Technology is producing amazing digital teaching resources that can enhance student learning and save time for always-busy teaching faculty at U.S. colleges and universities, but often the instructors don’t have time to find the resources, learn the technologies, and put them to use.

Science & Diplomacy, a free online publication that will explore the intersection of international scientific cooperation, foreign relations, and public policy, was launched today by the AAAS Center for Science Diplomacy. As international relations become increasingly complex and scientific endeavors become more international, it is important to have a dialogue between these two communities.

With the U.S. presidential campaign still in its early stages, the AAAS Office of Government Relations has developed a Web site that describes and tracks the candidates’ positions on science, technology, and innovation issues.

The site is designed to be a one-stop, continuously updated resource useful not only to scientists and engineers, but to businesses, journalists, educators, students, and others interested in the future of the nation’s research enterprise.
