An article in the Washington Monthly by Jon Marcus uses IRIS research to discuss how cuts in research funding have left midwestern state schools—and the economies they support—struggling to survive.
IRIS’ first research data is available through the Federal Statistical Research Data Center (FSRDC) System. The June 8 webinar with Census Bureau representatives will introduce interested researchers to the data and procedures for getting access to it.
The Inside Higher Ed article Communicating the Value of University Research When Science is Under Attack maintains that IRIS data show the connection between university research, job creation and economic benefit.
In a piece in The Conversation, IRIS PI, Bruce Weinberg, uses IRIS data to show how cuts in federal science funding will adversely impact the training of researchers and the future STEM workforce plus local economies through the reduction in purchases of equipment, supplies and services.
The 2014 Science article Science Funding and Short-Term Economic Activity is cited in the NPR Health Shots article about the potential negative impact of the Trump administration’s proposed budget which cuts biomedical research and public health spending.
