Science & Security Summit 2017

4/21: Science & Security Summit

In a political climate where the validity of facts is constantly challenged, nonpartisan and evidence-based research is more vital than ever before.

Where do scientists and engineers belong in the current political landscape? What are the roles of scientists and engineers in global security and safety? How can scientists and engineers keep us safe?

Join us on Friday, April 21 from 12-3 p.m. at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace to grapple with these questions (RSVP).

In addition to three distinguished graduate-level scientists and engineers from the University of Tennessee, University of Florida, and Texas A&M University, the summit's speakers will include:
Dr. John Holdren
Science Advisor to President Obama
