Against a background of increasing globalization, a blue ribbon panel was charged with recommending actions policy makers should take to enhance the science and technology enterprise so the United States could compete, prosper and be secure in the global community of the 21st century. The result of that work is the highly acclaimed report "Rising Above the Gathering Storm."

Dr. Cherry Murray, a member of the panel, will discuss the significant findings as well as the response to them that is shaping tomorrow's science, engineering and technology policy. She will also talk about the needs for R&D and workforce required for a US renaissance in nuclear energy.

Shuttle services will be provided by Transportation Services to and from the Museum. 4:25 p.m. departure from Wisenbaker Building. 6:45 p.m. departure from the Museum.
