Description

Complex problems of science, technology, and society are conspicuously, perhaps uniquely, apparent in national politics today. Where is the community of science policy scholars who can span the terrains of intellectual inquiry and real-world practice to contribute to public deliberation and democratic decision making on these problems? We propose to conduct a national competition to identify members of the next generation of leaders of science and technology policy, and to bring them together for a workshop, hosted by Arizona State Universitys Consortium for Science, Policy, and Outcomes (CSPO), aimed at helping them advance their careers, promote their ideas, develop new ideas and collaborations, develop their capabilities as public intellectuals, and catalyze their participation in an emergent network of potential science and technology policy leaders.
