People involved

Goals of the tutorial

  1. Gain awareness of the science, technology, and policy (STP) landscape. In the course of your S&T work, you might recognize landmarks and wander on over to investigate.
  2. Provide a broad sketch of the STP landscape for you to investigate further if you're trying to effect change.

Three takeaways

  • Individuals can incorporate their science and technology expertise in policy by getting in contact with the public policy staff of your respective professional societies.
  • ESIP may wish to explore how to highlight and communicate the potential contribution of its science and technology constituents to policy.
  • Although the meeting session focused on federal policy, there is also a role for science and technology in state, local, tribal, territorial, and international policy.
