IEEE-USA: Focus on innovation, education in ’08
IEEE-USA will continue working to increase federal investment in research and bolster U.S. innovation and competitiveness in 2008, said IEEE Life Fellow, and newly-appointed IEEE-USA president, Dr. Russell Lefevre. “Our overarching goal is to keep the United States the most technologically advanced nation on earth. By increasing our nation’s investment in high-tech research and development, we can help bring good, high-paying jobs to the United States.”
IEEE supports programs to foster innovation and unleash U.S. entrepreneurial spirit, he says. In 2008 IEEE-USA will support K-12 math / science education to encourage technical literacy and train future technologists; provide career-long continuing education to maintain a competitive U.S. workforce; and offer more member services.
