Description

High Energy Physics research in the U.S. is funded almost entirely by the federal government. Our field competes for federal dollars with colleagues as close as Nuclear Physics, and as far removed as the National Park Service or School Lunch Program. How does our budget get put together, and by whom? What do we do, specifically as a User community, to advocate for our research program to the people making the funding decisions for our field? Finally, learn how you can help by getting directly involved with government outreach. Dr. Breese Quinn, Assoc. Prof. at the University of Mississippi and member of the D0 and Muon g-2 collaborations, has worked in government outreach for more than a decade, including several years leading HEP Congressional visits as Chair of Fermilab’s UEC Government Relations.
