2021 Science & Technology Policy Forum



The Essentiality of DEI to Innovation: Pathways to Excellence


The annual AAAS Forum on Science and Technology Policy is a conference for people interested in public policy issues facing the science, engineering, and academic communities. Since 1976, it has been the place where insiders go to learn what is happening around the growing number of policy issues that affect researchers and their institutions.

The 46th Forum on S&T Policy will gather virtually to discuss major current challenges affecting science, policy, and society, as well as their intersectionality. The Forum gives you exclusive access to participate in discussions with some of the nation’s top experts and decision-makers on the most important public policy issues and how we should build on this framework for the future.

Who should attend?
Scientists and engineers, research administrators, industrial R&D managers, policymakers, association officials, federal grant recipients, students, science diplomats, government affairs specialists, public affairs officers, science writers, and others with an interest in the intersection of policy with science and technology.
