March 9 – Science Policy Symposium

The GSAS Science Policy Club invites you to attend to the 2011 Science, Technology and Policy Crossroads – a student led symposium exploring ways to analyze and participate in the intersection of science, technology and policy.

Wed March 9,  4pm, The Broad Institute – 5 Cambridge Center
RSVP at or

  • Do you think scientists should be more engaged in public policy ?
  • Are you worried about the miscommunication of science to the public?
  • Are you interested in policy issues directly related to science, like nuclear security, alternative energy, climate change,  health reform,  biotechnology and  science education?
  • Did you ever have the feeling that there are others out there who share your interest in science and technology policy, but who you barely and only incidentally meet?
  • Join us for the second annual Science, Technology, and Policy Crossroads – as we bring together the greater the Harvard and MIT academic communities interested in science and technology policy issues and their impact on society

This year’s symposium will include:

  • A panel of science policy experts (focusing on biotechnology as an example)
  • Student break-out sessions on different policy topics
  • Free food & drinks
  • Lots of opportunity for interaction, conversation, and networking
