About The Program >>

The mission of the Science and Technology Policy Program is to engage policymakers and scientists in substantive dialogue with the hope that policy will more accurately reflect and be more consistent with current scientific knowledge. The program organizes workshops, lectures, research projects and conferences to bring attention to and help bridge the gap between science and public policy. Issues of interest include space, health and medicine, energy and the environment, national and domestic security, science education, and the public’s understanding and trust of science.
