Science of Science and Innovation Policy: AAAS-NSF Workshops

As an initial step towards building science of science policy communities among National Science Foundation Science of Science and Innovation Policy (SciSIP) grantees and between these grantees and other science policy researchers, analysts and policy makers in related academic, governmental, scientific and professional organizations, we have organized a one-and-a-half day workshop of awardees under SciSIP’s first and second rounds of awards, augmented by a limited number of representatives from NSF, the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC) and other Washington-based science policy networks.
