JSPG has announced its 2019-2020 Governing Board. The Governing Board is comprised of leaders and scholars in science policy who provide oversight and strategic guidance for JSPG’s work, particularly for outreach, engagement, and strengthening partnerships.
JSPG has expanded its efforts to expand engagement and collaboration with science policy and diplomacy organizations outside of the United States with the creation of two new staff positions.
Science Debate asks candidates, elected officials, the public and the media to focus more on science policy issues of vital importance to modern life. As a registered 501(c)(3), Science Debate is nonpartisan. Under the partnership, JSPG and Science Debate will cross promote and explore collaborative strategies to engage students, postdocs, and early career researchers in science, technology, and innovation policy election debates.
On November 10 at the National Science Policy Symposium in New York City, JSPG and the National Science Policy Network launched a new international policy-memo writing competition to engage graduate student science policy organizations in S&T policy. Learn more.
