A survey of university leaders has shown that the sequester — mandatory budget cuts which will remain in effect for the next eight years unless Congress acts — will adversely affect the innovation and technology edge the U.S. enjoys. The survey, conducted by the Association of American Universities, the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities and The Science Coalition, asked leaders from 171 public and private research universities about the effects of the sequester. The survey suggests cuts to federal research grants and delayed federal projects have already had a negative impact.
