On May 3, Kaye Husbands Fealing, chair and professor in the Georgia Institute of Technology’s School of Public Policy, discussed the National Science Foundation’s Science of Science and Innovation Policy program (SciSIP) during the second day of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) forum on science and technology policy in Washington, DC.
Prior to joining the School of Public Policy, Husbands Fealing developed and served as SciSIP’s inaugural program director. The SciSIP program was designed to advance the scientific basis of science and innovation policy by supporting research to develop models, analytical tools, data and metrics that can be applied in the science policy decision making process.
In addition to SciSIP, she spoke about methods of quantifying the economic value of scientific research in order to better understand the value of science to the public.
The annual AAAS Forum on Science and Technology Policy is a major conference for professionals interested in public policy issues facing the science, engineering, and higher education communities.
The School of Public Policy is a unit of the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts.
