Holdren’s lecture, “Science and Technology Policy in the Obama Administration: A Progress Report,” will detail how the Obama administration’s pledge to “put science in its rightful place” has impacted federal support for issues like research and development, jobs, the economy, healthcare, energy, climate change, space exploration, and science and math education.
