Scientific community/Scientific organizations/Scientific conferences

The AAAS Annual Meeting 2019 teemed with news, learning and sharing – as well as Science & Technology Policy Fellows. Thousands of scientists, engineers, educators, policymakers and journalists from around the world convened in Washington on February 14-17 around the theme of “Science Transcending Boundaries.”

This past fall, the U.S. Census Bureau became the newest agency to host a AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellow (STPF) when it took on a data science researcher.

“I think that the scientific community has to ensure that it does not fall victim to this growing sense of nationalism,” AAAS President Margaret Hamburg said Thursday. “Science at its best is an international activity.”

This guide features sessions led by STPF fellows and/or related to science in policy and science communication. STPF looks forward to seeing you at the AAAS Annual Meeting!
