6th Annual Visualizing Science Policy 20x20 and Science Policy Resource Fair


For 47 years, AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellowships (STPF) has worked with federal agencies and sponsoring scientific societies to provide opportunities to accomplished scientists and engineers to contribute to evidence-based policymaking, here and abroad. The success of the STPF program lies in these long-standing partnerships as well as the experiences of the 3,000+ fellows who are the lifeblood of the program. These are the stories of the people who live each day at the intersection of science and policy.

Join current and alumni AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellows as they explore the science policy arena through projects from academia, government, industry, nonprofit organizations and the arts. Challenging themselves to communicate visually, each presenter will present a “flash talk” – 20 images for only 20 seconds each. It will be a stimulating and enlightening evening! 


Following the flash talks is a science policy open house and networking reception with representatives from various AAAS programs, partner scientific societies, science policy agencies, and organizations. Join us for this fast-paced evening of compelling issues and discussion. Sponsored by AAAS.
