Home > Press > Science and Technology in the White House: New Report on Best Practices for the Next Administration

Abstract:
The science and technology policymaking capacity of the White House must be enhanced so that the next president can address key issues facing the nation—from energy and the environment, to national security, and the ability of U.S. companies to compete internationally.

Science and Technology in the White House: New Report on Best Practices for the Next Administration

Washington, DC | Posted on June 3rd, 2008

You are invited to attend an on-the-record media breakfast briefing on best practices for science and technology policymaking in the next administration. The briefing will take place at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, June 17. Participants include Lee H. Hamilton, president and director of the Woodrow Wilson Center and former Indiana congressman; Dr. David Abshire, president of the Lounsbery Foundation and president of the Center for the Study of the Presidency; and Deborah Wince-Smith, president of the Council on Competitiveness.

A light breakfast will be served starting at 8 a.m. At 8:30 a.m. David Rejeski, director of the Wilson Center's Foresight and Governance Project, will offer introductory remarks, and each speaker will talk for about 5 minutes. The remaining time will be allotted for Q & A.

This briefing will provide an overview of the key findings of a report that will be released on June 17, which draws upon more than 60 interviews and comments from science and technology leaders in both the public and private sectors, including all living former White House Science Advisors. The goal of the report is to present a set of best practices designed to enhance the effectiveness of the Assistant to the President for Science and Technology, the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), and S&T-related policymaking in other White House offices.
