The AAAS Leadership Seminar in Science and Technology Policy is a "crash course" in science and technology (S&T) policy, designed for those who need to know how S&T policy works. It is modeled after the highly acclaimed orientation program that AAAS provides for its new S&T Policy Fellows, but distills the key material into 5 days instead of two weeks. Space is limited to only 30 to 35 participants--the small group setting provides an ideal opportunity to learn about the challenges and solutions of S&T policy from the experts. Join AAAS to learn firsthand from key people in S&T policy, in settings ranging from Capitol Hill to White House staff offices.
