Welcome!

Welcome to the Penn Science Policy Group.  We are a group of scientists interested in the relationship between science and public policy, examining how both domains affect each other to shape our society.  

Our mission is:

1) To educate scientists about the process of science policy, namely how research and public policy can inform and guide each other.

2) To advocate for research and improve communication of science to the public.

3) To provide resources and training for scientists interested in developing a career in science policy.


We achieve these goals by discussing current issues in interactive monthly meetings, receiving career information from speakers and info sessions, and refining relevant skills through written and oral public communication.  

Whether you are planning a science policy career, or simply looking to stay abreast with important issues, we are here to help you learn about and navigate the field of science policy.

Thanks,
PSPG
