Science Next: Innovation for the Common Good

A project of the Center for American Progress, published by Bellevue Literary Press

12:00 - 1:00 PM EDT

After eight years during which science and innovation took a backseat to politics and ideology, the Obama administration has ushered in a new era. In that spirit, please join us for a celebration of the release of Science Next: Innovation for the Common Good. This is the informed citizen’s essential guide to science policy: an accessible compendium of essays on how public knowledge and understanding of science as an engine of progress will reveal solutions to today’s most pressing problems, including climate change, national security, and the need for access to affordable health care. Join us for a discussion of how science and technology policy improves the lives of all Americans, and shouldn’t just be the domain of beltway insiders. After all, "wonk" spelled backwards is "know."

Copies of Science Next will be available for purchase.
