Science Rising is a nationwide mobilization effort taking place throughout 2018 in the run-up to the midterm elections. It is not a one-day march—it is a series of local activities, events, and actions organized by many different groups.
Our shared goal is to ensure that science is front-and-center in the decision-making processes that affect us all—and to fight back against efforts that sideline science from its crucial role in our democracy.
2nd Annual Science Policy Symposium
November 10 @ 9:00 am - 6:30 pm
The National Science Policy Network and the New York-based student group Science and Education Policy Association are hosting the annual NSPN science policy symposium, a daylong event focused on bringing together early career scientists with an interest science policy, advocacy and diplomacy. Intended for all levels of experience, our schedule includes speakers, panels and workshops, and aims to provide an environment where scientists nationwide can interact and form connections that will lead to new collaborations and projects.
This year’s symposium is organized by SEPA – a graduate student and post doc led organization among Weill Cornell, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and Rockefeller University in New York City. The group educates scientists on the intersection of science and policy, explores science or education policy as a career path, and trains scientists to communicate to non-scientific audiences for advocacy and general public outreach.
