2014 IEEE-USA Employment Survey Report
The 2014 IEEE-USA Employment Survey was conducted to develop a better under-standing of the dilemma of unemployment among IEEE’s U.S. members, by conducting a survey of engineers who were unemployed at some point during the 2013 IEEE membership year. We surveyed U.S. IEEE members who reported being unemployed during 2013, using a self-administered, online questionnaire. The results were consistent with previous years—more than half of those surveyed had not been re-employed.
Nanomanufacturing - January 2014
As research continues and other nations increasingly invest in R&D, nanotechnology is moving from the laboratory to commercial markets, mass manufacturing, and the global marketplace - a trend with potential future import that some compare to history's introduction of technologies with major economic and societal impact, such as plastics and even electricity. Today, burgeoning markets, innovation systems, and nanomanufacturing activities are increasingly competitive in a global context - and the potential EHS effects of nanomanufacturing remain largely unknown. This report examines the future of nanomanufacturing; investments in nanotechnology R&D and challenges to U.S. competitiveness; ways to enhance U.S. competitiveness; and EHS concerns.
