AWIS-NJ Science & Policy Panel 101

Posted on Updated on

Science Policy 101
An event designed for science professionals. Understand how and why your participation is essential for shaping good science policy decisions. Science policy is a category of policymaking focusing on policies affecting the conduct of the science and research enterprise, including the funding of science. It also refers to the act of applying scientific knowledge and consensus to the development of public policies. 
Rush D. Holt, PhD., chief executive officer of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and a 16 year member of the US House of Representatives says  “The scientific community must play a role in advocating for policies that remove barriers and connect scientists. Fortunately, many in the scientific community are already working together to do just that.”
