TIA Lobbies for Federal Funding for Telecom R&D

the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) will establish a sixth division whose sole focus is increasing federal funding for communications technology research. In 2004, the association convened a Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Council to advocate for increased federal funding for communications-related basic research in the face of sustained reductions in industry research spending and an intensely competitive global environment. Participation in the CTO Council has grown to nearly 30 TIA member company CTOs and senior research executives, and the council has produced a white paper and timely recommendations for addressing this critical issue.
