Talking Technology: A Conference and Workshop
Though research and development, and science and technology in particular, are critical to our nation and our national defense, many policymakers who make decisions about S&T investments are not technical experts. As such, key concepts are often lost in translation. This conference will focus on best practices and lessons learned for communicating about science and technology.
Please note that the conference has two parts: morning speakers/panels and afternoon breakout sessions. During breakout sessions, participants will collaboratively brainstorm initiatives their respective organizations might undertake to enhance current communications efforts. To RSVP please use the register link and include in the email your title, affiliation, and expertise/background. (This will allow us to optimally plan the breakout sessions.)
