2010 Gordon Conference on Science and Technology Policy


2010 GRC on Science & Technology Policy
The 2010 Gordon Conference on Science and Technology Policy will focus on a wide range of research at the intersection of science, technology, policy and society. The 2010 Conference will focus in particular on further developing partnerships between North American and European researchers. Invited speakers represent a variety of scientific disciplines in the policy sciences, social and natural sciences as well as the humanities. The Conference will bring together a collection of investigators who are at the forefront of their field, and will provide opportunities for junior scientists and graduate students to present their work in poster format and exchange ideas with leaders in the field. The collegial atmosphere of this Conference, with programmed discussion sessions as well as opportunities for informal gatherings in the afternoons and evenings, provides an avenue for scholars from different disciplines to brainstorm and promotes cross-disciplinary collaborations in the various research areas represented.

  1. Looks like a stunning location... something AIG would have used for one of their retreats.

    With state and university budgets under heavy pressure, surely such scholars could find a little more economical location to have summer drinks on the veranda... unless such attendees are footing the cost from their own personal funds.

    No state university funds are supporting this event ;-) Though the thought makes me smile.

    The largest single contributor is GRC, a non-profit and some of our invited speakers are being brought in on federal grants of one sort or another, and some are providing their own funding. The vast majority of participants will be self-funded, which means they'll get the support where they can. GRC determines where there conferences are held, we didn't get out first choice.

    Of course, since the event is on a shoestring, if you know of a donor, we'll take their contributions, AIG included ;-)
