Although this meeting focuses on the technical aspects of sound data management, because we believe the benefits of this are self-evident to scientists who are used to taking the greatest care in analysing and using data, we should be aware also of the general research policy framework in which so much modern research is located. At the level of national and international science policy, funding bodies increasingly require evidence for best practice in data management; likewise, open-access mandates for publications may become a reality. This presentation contextualises the practice of our science within the evolving policy framework for publicly funded research.

http://www.euronews.com/ Governments are constantly searching for cost-effective education policies, while the private sector and industry offer their own funding solutions. This week we look at initiatives in three countries, Germany Sweden and the US. *Career Concept* Cinto Gersie is always on the run. He has his own business which he started while he was studying for his MBA, analysing the German mineral water market. He said: "I wrote my thesis on the mineral water market in 2006 and I finished my studies in 2007. The final paper I wrote was in fact my business plan for the company." Cinto was the first student in his class to be helped by an investment fund, and today his company is flourishing. He sells flavoured water to lifestyle customers, a fast growing market in Germany. He p...
Paul Hanley (Urban and Regional Planning, University of Iowa) Transportation is the market's circulatory system, ensuring the movement of goods and people essential to economic growth and prosperity. Transportation involves a tangle of interrelated policies—including urban and regional planning, regulation of multiple modes of transit, and sustainable consumption of precious resources. Our panel, led by faculty from the UI Urban Planning Department, will examine the range and challenges of these policies.
Funding agencies can influence how research is done, and researchers must respond quickly to agencies' initiatives. Clear policies and a collaborative policy process can help researchers respond. The National Science Foundation recently emphasized remote access to laboratory instruments—see one example from the department of chemistry.
Last legislative session, Gov. Greg Abbott made education one of his top priorities. Funding increased 59% even though the school age population only increased 55%. Now, that the Supreme Court has ruled that our state funding policies are legal, it's time for local officials to focus on how to use the money received from the state wisely. Spending $2 million on changing a school's name is not the best way to spend dollars given for education.

The Arts Management Program at American University hosted a colloquium on Friday, February 26, 2016. Several recent studies have explored issues of equity and funding for arts organizations of color. The DeVos Institute of Arts Management, the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy, the National Center for Arts Research, and others have all drawn conclusions and offered recommendations to define the problem and suggest solutions. This Colloquium will focus on funding for arts organizations of color, and connect these reports to current practice and current experience of cultural managers and artists. What can we learn from the "diversity" discussion 20 years ago that funded primarily large Eurocentric museums, ballets, and operas where program staff remain predominantly White in ...
This week on Future Sci Chat, we'll be chatting about a very important topic to all of us, the government policies that affect science funding and how pure science research is affected by those policies. We will talk about how world economies are helped by funding of the sciences, the payoffs that big government funded projects have for society as a whole, and who the winners and losers are in terms of publicly funded scientific research. We're so excited to bring you the latest in science and technology every week!

Donald Trump's new Mexican border policy looks something like this; hire 5000 new guards, close the frontier, and suffocate the cities offering sanctuary status to illegal migrants. Sanctuary facilities began to be made available in several churches in the 1980s for migrants fleeing central America's savage conflicts who failed to obtain asylum. The large town of Cambridge in Massachusetts is one of these sanctuary cities. Local officials insist it will remain so. Cambridge to remain sanct… READ MORE : http://www.euronews.com/2017/01/26/us-sanctuary-cities-face-funding-cuts-if-migrant-tolerant-policies-continue What are the top stories today?

This webinar discussed a new SSTI report on innovative, sustainable transportation funding models to assist decision-makers in identifying policies and practices to augment the current fuel tax revenue system. The report provides a broad account of these funding methods, where they have been implemented or proposed, and identifies state laws, policies, and practices that permit state DOTs and local governments to pursue a more sustainable funding model. The report, completed with the participation of North Carolina DOT, as well as Arizona, Illinois,Tennessee, Vermont, and Washington DOTs, suggests ways multiple revenue sources might be packaged to support and maintain transportation systems. In addition to SSTI staff, Paul Morris, Deputy Secretary for Transit for NCDOT, and Joe Segale, Pol...
Good times set to roll again as funding to start flowing into Zimbabwe THE African Development Bank (AfDB) is pleased with Zimbabwe’s economic policies and could soon start extending critical funding to the country. A high-level delegation from the bank will be in Harare soon for major talks with Government, with resolution of Zimbabwe’s external arrears featuring in those discussions. Focus will also be on energy, agriculture, infrastructure development and youth enterprise — areas the multilateral financing institution has shown keen interest in. Zimbabwe has not been accessing direct funding from the AfDB, World Bank and IMF on the back of arrears of US$1,8 billion. US$627 million of this sum is owed to the AfDB whose economic interventions in the Southern African nation have been res...
