New Tools for Science Policy
Open House: The Future of Science Policy
About the Seminar
October 09, 2018 3:00pm—7:30pm
With technologies like self-driving vehicles and proposals like tourist trips to the moon, science fiction is rapidly becoming science reality. How should science policy govern this rapidly approaching future? Who should be involved, what tools do we need, and how do we prepare the next generation of leaders?
Join us for an open house to explore the future of science policy!
Exploring Democratic Governance: Solar Geoengineering Research*
3:00 – 4:30 pm
A mini-deliberation on the future of solar geoengineering research. This deliberation draws on our recent project, funded by the Sloan Foundation, to better understand public perspectives on a controversial approach to addressing climate change. How can participatory technology assessment (pTA) help bring public values into difficult and complex science policy decisions?
* Please RSVP to this event ONLY if you are able to attend. We need accurate attendance counts in order to produce materials and assign groups. If you become unable to attend, please update your RSVP ASAP.
