New policy immersion program in Phoenix

SOTL Phoenix

ASU's Consortium for Science, Policy, and Outcomes has added a new location for its popular Science Outside the Lab program that began in Washington DC more than a decade ago. The event will be held Monday, May 19 through Friday, May 23, 2014. Applications are due by March 15.

The program introduces students to the relationships among science, technology and innovation policies, and the societal outcomes in places where important decisions are made. During the new one-week workshop—now offered in Phoenix—students meet and interact with decision makers who fund, regulate, and shape innovation and critique, publicize and study science, including patent attorneys, insurers, venture capitalists, city and state officials, lobbyists, consultants, regulators, journalists, and others.

Science Outside the Lab
The long-running Washington, DC science policy immersion program returns for the Summer of 2014. Graduate students in science and engineering who are interested in how decisions about science and innovation funding, regulation and policy are made will benefit from this program. Students with an interest in careers in science policy will also find this to be an excellent opportunity to learn about important fellowships and meet current science and innovation policy professionals.
