The Science, Engineering and Technology Congressional Visits Day (SET CVD) is an annual two-day event that brings scientists, engineers, researchers, educators, and technology executives to Washington to raise visibility and support for science, engineering, and technology. Uniquely multi-sector and multi-disciplinary, the SET CVD is coordinated by a coalition of professional societies, companies and educational institutions. It is open to all who support science and technology. The program consists of a series of briefings and meetings, culminating with a full day of visits to your Congressional delegates.
SET CVD raises awareness of the long-term importance of science, engineering and technology to the nation through face-to-face meetings with Members of Congress, congressional staff, key Administration officials and other decision-makers.
The core messages we will deliver are:
- Balanced federal investment in Science, Engineering and Technology is fundamental to the future of our Nation's prosperity.
- Science, Engineering and Technology partnerships between government, universities, and industries mean progress, economic growth and jobs for our Nation.
CVD 2015 will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday, 17-18
March, in Washington, D.C. The 2015 schedule will be posted
soon. For more
