Media Advisory 04-17
Media Availability: NSB Members to Discuss S&E Indicators 2004

April 30, 2004


Members of the National Science Board (NSB) will be available to discuss Science and Engineering Indicators 2004, the NSB's biennial report to the president, with members of the news media at noon (Eastern time) May 4, at the National Science Foundation (NSF).

The discussion will focus on data presented in Indicators 2004 and the board's conclusions about how "emerging and critical" developments affecting the U.S. science and engineering workforce will influence the continued strong R&D performance of the United States, nationally and internationally.

Every two years, Science and Engineering Indicators reviews the state of science and engineering research and education in the United States and is the most comprehensive source of information on R&D by universities, industry and the federal government.

Reporters unable to attend in person can participate by conference call. For access, call 877-410-1072 and use passcode 246087.
