Next Friday (October 5th) at noon in Silverman 4-510 SPOT will be holding its first monthly meeting of the year. Instead of having general body meetings, this year we will try out having monthly discussions on important topics in science policy. Also, there will be pizza! We’d love to have your input on what topics would be most engaging (or if there is a discussion you would like to lead!)
This month our topic is: Science advocacy vs. Scientific advising- what is the difference between the two, and can one person (or organization) be credibly involved in both? What does it mean to be an impartial science expert?
